New member here with some questions. We sold our 34 Californian last year after 12 years of mostly happy times. We then had a wild hair and found a Hunter 260 trailerable sailboat. As you all probably know, downsizing is tough ! While the Hunter is a fun weekender, we miss our trawler. Sooooo, here we are looking for a 38-44 ft'er and wonder where the older Puget trawlers were made. As the name may suggest, probably the Seattle area, but have yet to verify. Some scuttlebutt of CHB ? I see several on this site are owners of such beauties, and hope to get some first hand info. There is a nice 44 listed in Olympia.
Our plan, after the wife retires in June, is to cruise the Pacific Northwest like many of you have done or are now doing. This great site looks to be a wealth of info and thanks in advance.
Fillet and release !
