Jim and Lisa Favors On Board Ranger Tug Kismet
Two Long-Distance Cruisers Find The Upside of Downsizing
The Favors share an unbridled passion for boating. “After spending five years as long distance cruisers, completing the Great Loop boat trip almost twice in two different 40′ boats, we decided to change the way we boat. We wanted to expand our cruising horizons in the United States and Canada, both so rich in spectacular waterways and historic events. We sold our 40-foot Fathom trawler to buy a Ranger Tug R27, a trailerable trawler. We’re excited and invigorated to learn and share the interesting things we discover while towing our boat all over the United States and Canada. We also use Kismet as a “Boaterhome” while traveling between cruising destinations. We stay at RV parks across the country using Kismet as a recreational vehicle while on the road. We believe trailerable trawling is the wave of the future in boating. It’s a great way to see our great country and neighboring Canada”– Jim and Lisa Favors
