Does anyone here ever run these with just one engine
at a time?
I am going to sell my 1976 Allied
in order to buy a trawler
. If they are going to be that expensive to operate, I may try the Great loop in my ketch
and pay quite a bit have my masts removed and stored somewhere in NY and then shipped to Chicago and reinstalled. Besides, the trawler idea is more appealing because of the additional space inside. I might just settle on a 36' trawler the only problem being a single engine in tight spaces. If it don't come with a bow thruster, one will be too expensive for me to put in and so just live without one.
will be listed with a broker by mid-week. It might take a while to sell it, but when it sells, I will own a trawler in less than a week. When I finally decide what I want I will own one in a week or less. I have always boat shopped that way. I am also willing to travel to buy one. When I bought my current
Allied, I drove over 1200 miles to look at it. Made a deposit and drove 1200 more miles home. Made that 2400 mile round trip 3 more times between the closing and prepping for a sail across the Gulf of Mex.
