December 2017

Dear Krogen Enthusiast,

After more than a year of design and development, and nearly another year of construction, I am pleased to announce the first Krogen 50’ Open has arrived. Scheduling conflicts mean that Janet and I will not see her (“Together”) until after this issue of NAVAID has been published, but one thing is for certain, this will be a December to Remember! We will be sure to share more photos in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, there is still time to make this a December to remember for you and your family. Happy Holidays from all of us at Kadey-Krogen Yachts.

Fair Winds,
Larry Polster
Vice President

An Uncommon Friend

Pardon us as we take a break from our regularly scheduled content to present to you, a special thanks to a member of the Krogen family. Enjoy this submission written by Gil Rose, the Executive Officer for the Rockville (Maryland) Sail and Power Squadron.

Occasionally, you meet someone on the water who makes a difference in your life, and Dr. Jim Brown is one of those people.

A nationally-recognized oncologist, Jim Brown has certainly spent much of his life helping others, and even in retirement, he hasn’t stopped giving back to his community. Jim and his wife, Barbara, spend about nine months each year living aboard their beloved Krogen 44’ named ARIEL.

In the fall, they cruise south from their Maryland homeport to Stuart, Florida, and then return north in the spring and stay through the summer months to enjoy the Chesapeake Bay and beyond. Some of their summer adventures have included cruising to Maine, exploring the Thousand Islands, and checking out other beautiful, Canadian destinations. But no matter, whether he’s at sea or in his slip, he’s serving his friends and fellow boaters.

I’m Gilbert Rose, the Executive Officer for the Rockville (Maryland) Sail and Power Squadron, and I have been an active boater for decades. It is people like Jim, that I rely on to teach this old sailor new tricks…and who model values such as service to others, that make me proud to be a part of the greater boating community. Jim has been an active member in the Rockville Maryland Sail and Power Squadron for many years (now beginning to be known as America’s Boating Club, Rockville, as the U.S. Power Squadron changes its name to America’s Boating Club (ABC)).

A USCG Licensed Master, Jim has been involved in boater education, teaching on a range of topics from engine maintenance to numerous medical issues. And as our Medical Director and member of FAST (First Aid Support Team), he contributed to the CPR/First Aid for Boaters curriculum for the Safety Institute of Maryland (teaching that is presented to recreational and professional mariners in Maryland and Florida). Jim and ARIEL have also been featured in the Power Squadron’s Digital Media Library, which offers short videos on various aspects of boating safety.

Furthermore, for two years in a row, Jim has volunteered his time and exceeded in performing more than 100 vessel safety checks—a free safety program provided by the United States Power Squadrons. Boaters who take advantage of this free safe-guard, rest assured that passing this voluntary inspection puts them in complete compliance with Coast Guard regulations for their vessel (and you always learn something new!). However, Jim would freely admit that this is the most expensive “hobby” he has ever undertaken—because when inspecting other boats, he always finds new things and toys he wants for HIS boat. In fact, Barbara says, “We have spent LOTS of boat units because of his vessel safety checks…to my chagrin!”

Until recently, Jim maintained an active medical license although he had retired from his medical practice. Consequently, he was often sought-out for medical advice about strokes, anaphylactic reactions, recent cancer diagnoses, infections, fractures, and so on. And one time, when a friend came down with life-threatening pancreatitis while cruising in Maine, Jim and Barbara took over care of his boat, his dog, his cat, and helped steer his wife to the proper ongoing care. Jim even organized a flotilla of boaters to check on the boat on a mooring several times a day and helped ensure that the friend had follow-up care for several months. From this dangerous medical experience, Jim, Barbara, and other boating friends, conducted a seminar for boaters on what type of information you need onboard in case of an emergency, such as Medical Power of Attorney, list of medications, and more.

Yes, Dr. Jim Brown is an uncommon friend to have on the water! It is a pleasure to know him through ABC. Be sure to greet him when you see him; he’s part of your Kadey-Krogen family!

Respectfully Submitted,

Gil Rose
