Historic boat originally built for and owned by the Pillsbury family. Later in its life used in the Cuban Mariel boatlift. Then seized by the US government and auctioned off. Subsequently bought from that owner in 1986. At some point it was named “Crown Jewel” (we placed that name on the forward port wall in the engine room) and we renamed the vessel. We rewired and rehabbed the whole vessel personally and have owned it since then. Used for family adventures in the Bahamas every year (usually 2 months at a time). Usually gets hauled about every 2-3 years, barnacles scraped, zincs replaced, and bottom repainted.
