New Manatee Owner says hello

Hello everyone. My husband Nick and I are the happy new owners of a 1984 Kadey Krogen Manatee, hull #3, formerly Lionheart of Punta Gorda, now renamed Williní.

We are new to boating (be kind to us!) and are very excited to own this classic little trawler. We plan to live aboard in the winter, at least for now, and eventually venture out for some fun ďat home on any sea.Ē

Much to learn, much to do to spiff her up.

Iíve been following this forum for quite some time, and now Iím making my debut. I hope not to drive everyone nuts with dumb questions, but no promises because at this stage, I donít even know what qualifies as a dumb question.

Cheers

Kate

Welcome Kate: Glad to see that you’re excited about owning the former great Lionheart. Augie was well known among the Krogen Cruisers Group for many years. Stay in touch about your plans and projects aboard Willin’!
