Smile Possible trawler owner by end of month

Hi!
Husband and I have an accepted offer on a 1979 CHB 34 aft cabin. We've done the sea trials, and are awaiting mechanical inspection and survey in a week and a half. If all goes well, we'll be closing by the end of the month. We're starting to get excited about it. We're moving up from a MacGregor 26M, so it's a big step up in terms of usable space. It is however a step down in speed.
Looking forward to finally getting to Desolation Sound!

Welcome aboard and congratulations on your purchase. Other then speed I think you will love how much they have packed into a 34 foot aft cabin. We love ours and think nothing of multi-week cruises without touching shore.

Thanks! We're looking forward to it, and may try to pick your brains later about different things as we figure out the best way to set up our boat.

Was that CHB formally in Ladysmith? If so, I know the owner about 2 back, if so you'll be happy to know he took really good care of it.

Not sure if it used to be based out of Ladysmith. It looks like it's been well taken care if, which is part of why we made the offer on it.
Current name is Dragonfly, if that helps

Belated update: the boat is ours! We took possession of it at the end of March, and were lucky enough to have a good weather window then to motor it from Sidney to Nanaimo. We've been busy since then cleaning,tinkering and equipping it.
