Hi folks! My wife and I are retired and recently purchased a gently used 2018 R-23 from Bellingham Yachts. We trailer her and usually launch out of Everett. To help with fishing, I added a 9.9 kicker and two Scotty down-riggers. Her original name was Next Ten previously owned by Jim G. (Well known with "tugnuts"). My previous boat was an aluminum 2018 ThunderJet Luxor hardtop. This one is much more comfortable for us 70-year-olds but presented a huge learning curve. Plan on cruising up to Desolation after we get more experience.
