For many cruisers, the highlight of their Great Loop is the Trent-Severn Waterway across Ontario.

Looping the Loop on the Web

We're launching the section of the site devoted to the Great Loop and other waterways with a directory to sites of people who have already cruised the Loop or are in the midst of doing so.

Help grow the list of sites by sending suggestions for additions to Trawlers & Trawlering.

Karen Clute serves as Associate Linkmaster, Great Loop Sites, at Trawlers & Trawlering. She visits the sites and writes the reviews you see here.

Karen and her husband on Tellico Lake which is part of the Tennessee waterway and own a Fourwinns 288 Cruiser. They plan to start the Loop in the next year or so but are not certain what kind of boat we will use for the loop because "we think the 28-footer will be too small for us to successfully stay married and do the Loop."

"We are looking at Tollycrafts or Carvers," Karen says. "I know there is quite a difference but we like both for different reasons. We used to live in Michigan before semi-retiring to Tennessee.  We have always had boats of one kind of another but have not really started getting into cruising until we reached Tennessee."
