Greetings from FL

Howdy. I dream of some day owning a boat, and hopefully it won't be too long before it happens. My dream boat--right now--is a Krogen 55 Expedition. Though there are other boats I like too, such as N Pacific 59 PH, Fleming 58 & the Selene 56. But, unless I win the lottery, I'll have to buy a smaller used boat. Which is fine by me.

Anyway, a bit about me...I'm a Florida native--5th generation--but I have lived all over, from CA to MO to KY and several other places as well. I like working on things and building things. I work in the performing arts, behind the scenes. I currently reside in the town of Sebastian, but work in Ft Pierce, which is my home town. I grew up on power boats and have some experience on a 42' sailboat too.

I would love to cruise the Bahamas & Caribbean someday, like my parents did in their sailboat. Now, I need to find the time and the money...

Thanks. Yes. I'm familiar with it. I've only been there once...and I think there's another one in St Augustine...maybe? Nice place...I should get back there.
