Chuck and Susan, recently of the Sea Trek, have moved to a new boat and are chronicling its retrofit and upkeep, along with their cruises.
We have spent the last 17 years living aboard and cruising our Mariner 40 ketch, Sea Trek. Recently we sold her and after much soul searching decided a change in lifestyle and scenery was in order so the search was on for a new boat. We knew a trawler was in our future and after doing a lot of research and looking at a lot of boats we found a very well cared for 1980 Marine Trader 34. We have named her Beach House for Susan’s love of the beach and the hopes that the view from our new house will always be pleasant. Our plans are to continue our lifestyle and to change our cruising grounds a bit and visit those inland lakes and rivers we never could with our sailboat. Those of you that have followed our adventures on Sea Trek will continue, we hope to visit us here and continue to track our progress.
