About the Owners
Jeff dreamed of doing The Great Loop. Looking for the right boat, he found Linda - the perfect Admiral. Looked at lots of boats, kept coming back to Pilgrims. Love at first site when we boarded our first Pilgrim (#45 Miss Lily). Found Vagabond in Florida and started cruising. Jeff handles navigation and nautical stuff, but Linda is the ship's mechanic (Jeff's a lucky guy). We cruised from the Keys to Lake Ontario. Jeff's health grounded us for a while, but Vagabond's new Florida home provides great local cruising grounds.
