Trading paddles for fuel cans

Just had my purchase offer accepted (pending sea trial as soon as we have ice out) for a 34' 1977 Marine Trader DC. I think I may have achived the title of the "oldest new boat" bought this spring! Going to see just how much world there is beyond the breakwater.

I laughed when I saw the title to this thread. A sense of humor is always good when you own a boat. Keep us posted on the transition. Congrats and welcome!

Congratulations! Welcome to the forum! I never gave up the paddle; just put the kayak on top of the trawler. The mother ship can take you to lots of great places to paddle.

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....

Welcome aboard.

Just a tad frosty in Sandy Creek. Most probably a good idea to wait, just a bit...

Thanks everyone for the welcome. I am looking forward to this new adventure and all of the "fun" that owning an almost 50yr old boat is bound to bring. I am sure there are going to be a few questions that I'll need help with. So, in advance, I ask for patience as I come up to speed on even the most elementary aspects of owning a larger boat. Thanks again.
