Boat Project List


We were very excited to purchase our new trawler, we quickly developed a project list to be worked on over the winter.

It didn’t make it easy, as we live near Minneapolis and the boat is in winter storage at Mackinaw City Michigan (think 11 hour drive through northern Michigan in the winter).

Here is a rough list – see future posts for more detailed information!

Many have been completed and will be detailed and photographed in blog posts as we go along.
