Greetings from Jupiter!.

I am a newb here also. I was a sailor in my youth in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, and had plans to buy a sailboat with my wife and sail away to Panama to retire. Our son took us on a daysail on a Hunter 45, and the captain wrapped the rolling furling sheet around the stanchion, and when it popped it sounded like a gunshot. We also were heeled over pretty good most of the time. It didn't bother me, but it really bothered her.

She is now a BIG fan of trawlers, and is on board to get one. As soon as silver makes it's next big move, I am getting me a trawler.

I love sailors and I love trawlerors! Welcome aboard.
