Hello and Salutes

I am truckerdraven I am currently a long.haul trucker but I'm saving up for either a motorsailer or trawler perferably long range cruiser. I right now the only experience I have is a bass boat on the local lakes and rivers. I currently run in the northeast USA and live in central Pennsylvania. It has been way too long since I've been on an adventure. I have been skydiving in Brazil sking in Switzerland fighting the taliban and terrorists in Afghanistan learned some swordsmanship in japan. And my life as of lately as in the past few years has become extremely boring. So I plan on buying either a motorsailer or trawler and go on an adventure in the pacific ocean how I'm thinking about going is starting near los Angeles ca out to Hawaii then down to French Polynesia then to Fiji new calidonia new Zealand australia up through the phillipenes up to japan then to russia over to alaska and down the west coast of the usa Or thats the rough Plan at least. Any input will be.appreciated. shawn.

Re: Hello and Salutes

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. Not as many trawlers make it the 2300 miles out to the islands so I'd recommend a motorsailer or a sailboat with a larger dependable engine.
kind regards,
