Greetings. Yes this is my first post. We have been lurkers here for several months but thinking now about jumping in. By jumping in I mean my wife and I being 58 years young and newly moved from inland Colorado to lovely coastal Charleston are considering a cruising lifestyle. We have limited boating
experience mainly lake boating
with a short (2 yr) stint of ocean/bay sailing. The ICW
at our feet here and cruising would be a completely new experience. We are curious as to how to go about this. Powered feels the way to go at this stage in our lives so we have been researching trawler
type boats along the east coast
. What we would love to do is to meet someone already doing the powered cruising thing out of Charleston. Having never even set foot on anything bigger than 24' we would love to experience something powered in the 32'-40' range and have an opportunity to learn first-hand what the liveaboard/cruising life is like. I mean just how loud is the Lehmann? :-) If there is a somebody out there that would be willing to introduce us to this new world and available in the Charleston area for a meet and greet please PM us. Thanks.
