Trawler newbie

Hello All,

We're purchasing a 1980 Mainship 34 Mk I. Our previous boat was a 1979 Chris Craft 33 Catalina.

The Mainship is the ideal size. (Rule of thumb: ideal size boat = 1 more foot).

The Chris was a great boat, but the twin 350's ate a lot of fuel really fast.

We're recently retired, now that we have more time than money we're looking forward to a bit more cruising.

Cheers - JR
