So here’s part of the little history that I gathered through the years, by either meeting people who recognized the boat, or having people find my website and email me what they knew about her.
She was named Salsa Verde by the daughter in law of the previous owner, John Boom from Gloucester Point, VA (2003-2008). Before that she was Dream Genie, owned by Dave Hackney, who was in Jacksonville, but moved to Charleston while he owned her (1999-2003). Before that she was Leprechaun in Jacksonville, but I don’t have the name of this owner. This may or may not the the dentist from New Berns, NC who was the second owner. And my most recent “surprise” was when Danny, the son of the first owner (Wilmington, NC, 1982-1990), found Salsa Verde by searching the sail number and sent me those pictures…

Thanks so much Danny!
