About the Owners (current and former)

The Harmons: He is a retired Army officer who lived in Alexandria, VA.

The Gracia's: Bob and Barbara have owned lots of boats besides an LNVT: Krogen 42, custom built 52' power cat, and at least one sailboat. With their boats they've cruised for 8 years visiting the Bahamas, Cuba, Coulumbia, and all points from Chile to Fairhaven, MA via the Panama Canal. Bob had lots of work done on his LNVT Barbara Mae at the Fairhaven Shipyard in Fairhaven, MA: installed Naiad Stabilizers and a Cummins 4BT-3.9M diesel.

The following came from Naiad's web site:

We installed NAIAD stabilizers on our Lord Nelson Victory Tug in the spring of 1995 and then left for a 4 week cruise to the St. John River in New Brunswick. Since then our feeling is “don’t leave home without them”. They have made a tremendous difference in our cruising comfort and therefore have extended our range and ability to use our boat on more days when we normally would have stayed in port. We have cruised for two summers now and not one cup of coffee has spilled while underway and we do not use any holders. My wife writes the log underway at our salon table.
