Two Manatees sold on the same day

Hi all,
Yesterday I bought (Velvet) and another wise man bought (Mango Mama)
Both boats were almost the same as far as ship shape although Mama has
a better inside upgrade. Pat and I are excited to get back on the water again in the Bahamas and are happy to join the KK team.
Kindly,Craig&Pat Boorman

Congrats on acquiring Velvet. We knew Mango Mama & admired her numerous upgrades. Garry was a fine craftsman, shame he had to let her go.

Sincere congrats on the purchase. It's great to have another Manatee owner aboard here. Two other Manatees exchanged hands this month. Even the one in Hong Kong seems to have moved on. I sent the picture below to Velvet's previous owner during a discussion about pilothouse changes. It was simply a KK Whaleback 48 roof, windows and portuguese bridge affixed to Velvet's pilothouse base.

Both Manatee's are great, had the pleasure of a dinner invite aboard Velvet when she was home ported in Ft Myer's, WOW what a great interior. We had just purchased Hi-D-Ho and where amazed to see what could be done with a Manatee.
For anyone still looking for a Manatee "Sassy" is for sale on yachtworld, the photos and write up sound very nice.

Yes, and I know a couple of people who ended up with Seclusion II, another unadvertised Manatee in Annapolis, whom had been aboard Sassy. They testified that it was definitely worth looking at, ...nice boat.

Hey, Wally and Darcy...sincere congrats on Summertime. The Summertime crew (Ray and Linda) are about the most experienced Manatee cruisers out there, and Summertime is a premium example. We've got quite a few Manatees collecting here on the Gulf Coast and it would be great to do some group cruising. Stay in touch.

Hi All,,,Just arrived to Velvet's new home port in Stuart fla. She did the 200 miles without issue. Now the work begins, wth inverter, watermaker, sat tv, electronics, tender. I have collected many items for living aboard in the Bahamas. I even have two electric fishing rods, pole spears, tackle for living off the landsea. Photos to follow.

Excellent, Craig & Pat. I'm also aboard my own Manatee most weekdays in Stuart. Where are you camped out?

Hi, Larry I think you showed us your boat last year if it is parked off Kanner hwy neat the High School. You were building a place to put your genset. We keep Velvet
in Willoughby Creek at our home. We want to rebuild our bridge just like yours.

Oh...THAT Craig. Good to know that you've kept at it. We should speak about the rebuilding of the bridge, as you noted. I've made some costly mistakes that you could benefit from. The new hatch is done, the genset is in place, and if I can get back over there, I'll be able to get the project completed. Living in Sarasota is great, but my Admiral's "stuff" and the 3.5 hour drive each way is putting a crimp in my plans. We should do breakfast.
