Travelers to be
My wife and I have been spending a few years researching trawlers and places we would like to explore. Our time frame for purchasing a trawler is 1 to 2 years from now. Our time frame for cruising on her is 5+ years, albeit with the understanding that life's unexpected curve balls can change plans at a moments notice.
We have determined that our desired cruising destinations are varied: eastern seaboard, Great Lakes, St. Lawrence seaway, Carribean, Baja California and the Sea of Cortez, Pacific Northwest, Canada's West Coast and SouthEast Alaska.
We feel this variety poses a particular challenge:what is the ideal boat for this?where sea keeping ability and draft are key aspects. Of course there are lots of other details we have short listed as necessary or desirable as we have progressed in our research.
We look forward to insights from others on this forum, and thank you in advance.
