October 1. The southern migration begins.


Here is the smallest of the Mirage Manufacturing trawlers buit in Florida. This is the Great Harbor N-37 and interestingly enough is designed by the same designer, Lou Codega, as are all the Regulator center console fishing boats, and lots of other remarkable craft. This little yacht model has many ocean passages to her credit, including a trip from Florida to Hawaii on her own bottom.

Viking Enclosed Bridge

A Viking enclosed bridge convertible rigged to cruise. The enclosed bridge is a sky lounge on these boats. Notice the lack of outriggers, no smelly fish on this boat.
