Re: Saying Hello to all from Illinois

Hello I just signed up and a new boater and my husband and I want to plan to do, The Great Loop. We are trying to sell our carver cruiser which we have had for 3 years. Its a great cruiser, but would like something a bit bigger and maybe looking into trawlers. Just not sure what we want. We live along the Mississippi river in Illinois and Iowa and have been just enjoying boating and local boating friends. We really do.like boating, but is a short season for us. Its our retirement dream and looking forward to.learn as much as we can. I was wondering is their groups or clubs that share ideas or meetip along that journey?
Thanks...happy boating and anyone interested in a power cruiser, but in Iowa
