How big of a Nordic is that Doc?* And what kind of Power does she have.* I have always been a big fan of those boats.
 
Here is my boat at Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay

I am a trawler enthusiast and love the cruising lifestyle. My current vessel is a PDQ Powercat. You wont get any trawler versus cat debate out of me. I simply love trawlers and Cats.
This site looks like its off to a great start, nice work to those who host it, thanks.

My wife and I just finished living fulltime for 5 years in a motorhome. We are now joining the floating community aboard our 40' Marine Trader Sundeck. We never made it to retirement, just quit, sold the house, left the next day, work a little, play a lot. No regrets!

Although my Avitar shows my 21' Parker, the CT is my first love. Yeah, Taiwan built in 1986, but one heck of a tough baby. The CT T-35 is a Ta Chaio built vessel, 35' LOA, with a TAMD-40B Volvo powerplant. Cruise is a comfortable 7 1/2 kts; its the trip, not the destination that is important. My wife and I have spent many happy days and weeks on her cruising about the Sounds of NC.

Sesame is a Camano Troll (AKA: Camano 28 or Camano 31).* Home port is Old Saybrook, CT.* We are on our second trip south for the winter.
 
The venerable Ed Monk designed Marine Trader / CHB / Sea Chief 34, a 1976, also known as a poor man's Grand Banks 36.

Happy with the design but not the*construction,*so recored the decks, recored a good portion of*the*house, then*basically built a new*outer shell of fiberglass over the old boat.* Replaced huge amounts of rotted balsa and substandard Marine Plywood the original builders used.

Reinforced, strengthend, and improved where I could.*

Rewired and replumbed most everything.

Being in the Midwest, and getting ready for winter,*planning to***replace the fuel tanks and recore the transom next year and then I'll be ready to hit the water again after four years of restoration (prospective buyers of older Taiwanese trawlers take note -- this is what it takes)

If you've got questions about doing major structural replairs on old Taiwanese tubs*using convential*amatuer tools I'll be happy to help if I can, there isn't much I haven't been into in one way or another.

This picture is from before I started, right now the boat's pretty darn ugly, with multiple colors of fiberglass filler....

Alan

CALYPSO is a Grand Banks 42 Classic model built of wood in 1972 in Hong Kong.* I bought her in August 1986 in San Diego and lived aboard there from Jun 1987 until April 1990 when I transported the boat to Galveston and then moved it on its own bottom to Panama City, FL.

Many modifications and improvements followed over the years, but the one I like best is the "pilot bench" for two I had built at the lower station where there had previously been no place to sit.* It proved its worth on last year's 2400-mile trip up the Tenn-Tom waterway and the Tennessee River.
