About the Owners (former and current)

Paula and Jim O'Brien: We had been sailors for 30 years and purchased Red Mary for our tranistion to the trawler lifestyle and enjoy her very much. Perfect boat for two people. We purchased her in Ft. Pierce, FL and came up the ICW in two shifts.

The O'Briens cruised Red Mary to Maine too. They subsequently bought a Krogen 42.

The Glaysher's: Cruised Jack Tar from Maine to Key West via the ICW and as far west as Lake Michigan.
