Hawaiian trawlers?

Hi Guys and Gals,

I've lurked in the background on this forum and a few others for years now but never been in a place to buy the boat of my dreams. I'm finally graduating from veterinary school and heading to Hawaii. I want to buy a trawler within 1-2yrs. I've always loved the ex-commercial troller and trawler types coming out of the Pacific NW.

Here is my question/issue. I haven't seen many trawlers for sale in Hawaii...especially, the ex-commercial fishing boat types. Any members in Hawaii who can point me in the right direction? I am after a single engine, 40-45ft, seaworthy ex-commercial fishing trawler. I know that they're a bunch available in California but the distance from Cali to Hawaii is a bit much for the normal fuel capacity of a 40-45ft trawler.

Thanks in advance and I cannot wait for the day when I get to post a picture of my boat on here! Until then I'll just continue to drool over some of the awesome trawlers you guys have!
