I will look into a trawler (don't know the difference yet). The only people we've ever known with boats have always been strictly fishing vessels. I will soon start my new collection of books about all things boat and sailing. Thanks, spinx

Spinx, a trawler is a type of boat with a motor and no sails. It has a type of hull that can't go fast but it uses relative small engines and has lots of interior room. There is also a class of boats called motor sailors that has both an engine and sails. Some say that it neither sails nor motors well!

Thanks for the quick info. In my case a trawler won't do, but a motorsailer might. I firmly believe in being prepared and informed. I beleve the idea of being at sea with only 1 form of power is demented, at the very least spinx

Hey Cowboy

You missed the major category that virtually all "Sailboats" fall into: "Sailing Auxiliaries" that is a boat that is primarily sail powered but that is equipped with an engine. Rare today is the true "Sailing Vessel" with no engine.
