I've concluded that a Krogen Express coastal cruiser is the best fit for my desires: Great Loop capable, low 4' draft
for exploring my native Florida
behind my house on the St Johns River, two roomy staterooms with two head/showers, seaworthy
to the extent of sailing the Caribbean
and Gulf, and (non-negotiable) a stand-up engine
room. However, I solicit any suggestions for comparable boats that I should consider before I make the leap.
