I've been over at TrawlerForum - it was suggested I come over here, too. A bit about me - I started boating
(canoeing) at 8 years old at camp on Lake Tamagami in Ontario
. Built a 10' kit boat at 13 - and opened Florida
Bay Boat Company in 1980 to produce the Marsh Hen, Bay Hen, Mud Hen, Peep Hen (and other Hens) - all small sailing boats. Teamed up with Jay Benford to create the Florida
Bay Coasters - large steel
trawlers that emulated small ships.
Since then, I joined up with Jim Krogen and was the founding president of Krogen Express - more recently, I started Island Pilot to build both fast cruising yachts and more recently, hybrid, live-aboard yachts - The DSe.
I'm hoping to enjoy swapping yarns and trading info here on Cruisers Forum.
