Trawler Dreams

If I could save up enough dough I would buy a really nice trawler. I should say that I want a nice sailboat, being a lifelong sailor and all, but I realize that the convenience of a trawler will end up to be the better bet in the long run.

My favorite boat so far is the Krogen 58, which would be perfect for sojourns up and down the East Coast.

Since a boat like this is big enough, we can use my son’s 13 foot Boston Whaler as our tender and our liesure life will be complete.

I imagine that we’ll spend our time traveling between Newfoundland and Florida with our friends meeting us along the way.

We  would hopefully spend much of the summer moored in Cotuit at Dead Neck (aka Sampson’s Island).

We would come in periodically to get provisions at the COOP.  (See how cold Cotuit looks during the winter!)

For the winter we would head down to Fort Lauderdale and the Florida Keys and stop along the way in Hilton Head and places like that. I would write for a living and hopefully make enough money to buy gas, food and beer.

I better start saving more pennies!
