Chris here... I am underway to find the trawler of my dreams. As I search I will be wandering through this forum gleaning info that I hope will help me in both my decision before I buy, and the "fun" that comes with ownership! At some point it will be a liveaboard situation, until then I'll learn all I can about my boat and the lifestyle from friends and fellow sailors. Truth is, I'm not new to the water or boats, but trawlers are a bit smaller than my last boat... I had a 1,092' steel hulled motoryacht named USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). Sleeps 6,000, fresh bottom paint, full-beam sundeck, and awesome range.
So, thank you in advance for any advice, clever wit, and nautical tips.
Oh, by the way I'm looking for a 32' to 36'...
