Brief historyGrace resided ~2020 in a fresh water lake (Queens Harbor) in Jacksonville FL, connected to the ICW by a lock system. She has sailed as far South as Columbia and has several sails as far as Bar Harbor and south to Fort Jefferson. She is reengined with a Yanmar 4JH3E, a 3 blade folding Maxprop, and had a major refit in 2018. I’ve owned her for the past 12 years and she has been flawless in every way (Craig Rowdon). Then sold to a liveaboard in 2022, last seen Hoboken, NJ.
