Pat was born in PA and moved to OH where he met his wife Tina. Neither of these places was warm enough, so they packed up, Tina sold her car for a jet-ski, and they moved to FL. They spent as much time on the water as possible with their kayaks and jet skis. Being surrounded by plenty of boats full of folks having a lot of fun with their friends, it did not take long for them to become intrigued. While paddling the Caladesi Island trail one day they heard music and the sounds of fun which they followed to the Caladesi Island marina. There they saw a group of folks with their boats relaxing, having fun, and living the FL life. That sealed it and shortly after they bought a used 33’ cruiser in hopes of becoming part of the group.
That group welcomed them as their own and over the years boating in general has delivered a social life beyond expectations. They have met so many friendly, fascinating, and real people, and have been nearly overwhelmed with the social opportunities available as a result of being part of the boating community. In addition, they were able to experience the true beauty of Florida’s waters in a way not otherwise possible. Owning the cruiser also provided Pat with valuable technical experience related to boat maintenance and operation. Now Pat wants to use his boating experience and his engineering and legal backgrounds to help introduce new boaters to the boating lifestyle and help experienced boaters continue the fun. To do this Pat joined Blue Horizon Yacht Sales as a broker and he is here to help you realize your boating lifestyle.
