Love the saltwater, either on it or in it. Also enjoy fishing, canoeing both scenic and whitewater.
Having been a general contractor for 41 years I designed and built the ‘Wahoo’ as my second home. I purchased the lot in the late 1980’s thinking that ‘next year’ I’d start the project, so….in 2003 I began the design and construction to meet the latest coastal wind and flood codes.
