Fort Lauderdale, FL
I was 39 years old when Dagon splashed, a dream come true. A lot of hard work, a beautiful woman, and a new 13lbs 4oz baby boy. What a decade.
While living and working on the “Delta” at Broward Marine, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I found Dagon stored in one of the sheds. The boat had been stored for nearly ten years. She was a handsome boat, built in 1932 by CA Morse in Thomaston, Maine. The rent for her storage had not been paid for seven years, so the boat was considered abandoned property. I approached Broward Marine about selling me the boat. They told me that to legally sell the boat it had to be done in an openly advertised public auction.
So I went to that auction determined to make her mine. I was 26 years old, highly motivated and hard-working, a young man with a vision to own a beautiful old motor yacht- rebuilt to the highest standards.
