Hello all! After 2+ years of looking for my first boat( and lurking on the forum), I am an official Trojan owner. I purchased a 1987 F32. When I first started my search, I developed an affinity for Trojans. Spending time on this forum helped cement my decision. This is a great forum, with a lot of good people, and good advice. I look forward to trading stories, and tips with you guys, and gals.
Happy boating!

The older Trojans are great boats. I have a 75 F32 and I love the boat. Welcome to the forum.

Hello and welcome,I did the same as you with the lurking it kinda gave me the reassurance that these boats were worth the project in the end.
