Each year, trawler enthusiasts gather to swap stories, share trawler wisdom and gawk at each other’s boats at the Trawler Fest. At the festival in Poulsbo, Wash., June 8 to 10, Ocean Navigator was on hand to deliver the award for the person who traveled the farthest to reach the rendezvous. It went to Hal Wyman, who voyaged aboard his Seaton-design Que Linda! from Honduras. The 55-foot vessel is equipped with a 275-hp Caterpillar 3406.
Trawler Fest is sponsored by West Marine. Upcoming events will be held in Mystic, Conn. (Aug. 3 to 5); Manitowoc, Wis. (Aug. 17 to 19); and Solomons, Md. (Sept. 28 to 30). Visit www.trawlerfest.com for details on upcoming events and services.
