Thirty-One-Derful Feet

Thirty-One-Derful Feet

Tuesday, 24 May 2016

Lisa and I enjoyed the opportunity for a little Pacific Northwest cruising aboard our new Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano while taking her to PassageMaker’s TrawlerFest in Anacortes. This gem is the latest (and the most compact) addition to the line of Helmsman Trawlers. We’ve been working for several years on this project to update and substantially redesign the venerable Camano 31 and were glad for some sea time to “test cruise" the finished product.

Like so many native Washingtonians, Gretchen Miles is a lover of the outdoors. Early on it was the mountains, not the water that had her attention. Climbing and hiking are passions of hers. However, while boating may have started out on the periphery of Gretchen’s life it didn’t stay there.
