Smile thanks for the add

Hi All,

new to the forum here. Trying to get my wife excited about buying a trawler and someday doing the loop. I"m in the process of starting my research and learning what i need to make this dream come true. Exciting to be here to learn more. We are recreational boaters now with a 27' mariah open bow. Hoping to buy a trawler in the next couple of years and spend a few years learning more before we head out on the loop.

Welcome aboard TF

A good place to start if you haven't already is Boat Search 101

One tip from experience... When trying to get a SO interested make the search FUN.
Wkend trips to boat shows, trawlerfests searching for boats etc are all opportunities to have some fun - find out what she might like to include and be sure to engage her in the process.
Good luck w/ the search and adventures
