Two great pieces of advice. FWIW, I have a hard time imagining using a PNW trawler in the waters around Hawaii. However, I have no experience piloting a boat there. It would seem to me that protected moorage would be scarce and very expensive. Most of the boat that I have seen on Maui were working boats, charters, excursion, etc... Then there were a lot sailboats. I don't recall seeing many Trawlers.
