About the Owners

Bought originally by the Taylors and kept at their home on the St. Johns River in Palatka, Fla. Understood Taylors sold to Gary Harmstead in 2001 and the Knotts bought it in pretty bad shape in 2004. We trucked it to Antioch and began refurbishing. All tanks were out, water damage inside, wood bad inside and out, etc. Began using it in a couple of weeks but worked on refinishing inside and out, replacing rub rail with starboard, removed freezer and remodeled inside. Pretty nice now according to our visitors.
