New Kadey Krogen Manatee owner

Hi, we purchased our Kadey Krogen Manatee the end of April 2014. We just returned from a 6 week check out cruise in the Keys. Love the boat! We're now docked at our home port for about a month to do some reprovisioning, have a renaming ceremony and visit the grand kids. We hope to leave for the Keys in late July and spend the month of August diving for lobster. We' like to know if there are any other Manatees spending the glorious summer months in the Keys.

Congrats welcome, the 36 Krogen is a very nice boat. I like the upper enclosed helm.
Best of luck with her.

The Manatee probably has more living space than any other 36 footer. Congrats on your new boat!

You'll probably hear from a fellow Manatee owner named Healhustler. He's usually a great guy and you can take him at his word, just don't believe any pictures he posts...especially any of me. He has an evil talent, I tell you. You have been forewarned!!

Welcome ColdBeans- Love the handle! Manatee is on my dream list. Just had a conversation with HealHustler, a poster of impeccable reputation for the truth, proven by various photos submitted over time. On the other hand, you will always learn good stuff on the various forums no matter that it is not an issue with your boat. In those conversations FlyWright will be a worthy source to hear. Great folks on the forum. Pitch in when ever.

Great boat. Just talked to a new owner in Charleston SC moving his from Florida to NC. He lost his engine, but said he got a great deal and planned on replacing it anyway. Good Luck!

Ah, yes. The lure of those sleek, graceful lines....yes, as a single guy the pugnacious 29' had everything I needed, and as you can see by my avatar, I was smitten by the 36, but after capturing this long distance photo of the illusive 40', I continue to dream.

Larry that 40 looks awesome. These are beautiful vessels with great lines and have very practical helms for operating in all conditions.

Billy: I think you're absolutely with the consensus of our lovely membership, although I have to admit that when I get waked by a big sport-fisher, I have to hang on to my lunch and my helmseat.

healhustler can be a great source of information. That is until he leaves the Manatee Zone. As you can see when out of the zone his pictures illustrate how his thinking has gotten out there somewhere in space.

As far a flywright is concerned, he can sometimes leave the reservation entirely as shown by his flamboyant attire.

Welcome to TF. As any other forum. You will filter the info, and use your best judgement.

Sure, that's the photo they share on TF, but don't under-estimate these two suave and sophisticated chick magnets. Here's the one from their Facebook page.

Why do I get the feeling that I am being used as the straight man here?

Cool Beans...who's Manatee did you acquire? At least three have changed hands this yr.

Windmill...what was the name of the boat that lost its engine & what is he replacing it with?

Cool Beans got the best of the bunch, but he was really fortunate. Only one left for sale here in the East. Still three on the West Coast. Maybe the good thing is that enough of them are going to less traditionalists, that is to say, owners whom are not against modernizing the boats. Remember, it was only several years ago that I got some flack for removing my waste stripe. We have to face the facts that we've got old boats here, and well thought-out mods during repair or reconstruction can improve the boat without devaluing it.

I could say something sexist about our ladies....but I won't.

Swannee was just back from the Bahamas and hung out here at our tiny marina here in Stuart, FL. I have to say that Bob did get the best of all bargains on that boat, but as you said, he knew the condition of the engine. Bob's a darned scrappy guy with good mechanical knowledge. He'll have that boat back on the water in no time.

Here's Bob and his Admiral leaving the marina.
