   Spring is Coming!

Welcome to our site where we will chronicle the complete restoration of a 1969 42' Bristol Trawler made in Bristol Rhode Island. Alot of research went into choosing this boat; many hours on the web looking at boats, reading the forums, chatting online, and visiting boat yards. I am a lifelong boater and my wife Siobhan (Irish, pronounced shiv-ohn) who's nickname is Sibsie, is the namesake of our current boat, a 37' Silverton Convertible. The new name of the trawler will be "Still Sibsie", although after yet another renovation and thousands of man hours and dollars, maybe she won't "still" be here when it's completed. LOL
