Pat and Joanne Rogers, Marathon


Pat and Joanne Rogers, Marathon
Above Board Surveying 305-340-8781
“I had developed a solar light for docks and Joanne was my supplier; that is how we met. I had been living in Florida for about 20 years when I met her, she was in Montana. We got to know each other talking on the phone. She gives good phone!
We had a long distance relationship for about 4 years when I moved to Montana and helped her finish raising her kids. We had built a big house with a pool on 5 acres in the mountains.
We sold everything we had, packed up what we did keep and moved back to Florida to live on a catamaran. We started surveying boats together and now live in Marathon and work together on both our businesses (boat surveying and window shutters) with our 2 dogs on a boat!
One of our most memorable times traveling was in Beaufort, SC. It was the most incredible Thanksgiving. There was the most wonderful party for wayward boaters at this bar. There was more food than you could possibly eat and they had a turkey bowl! The woman that owned the bar had lived on a steel sailboat with her husband for like 11 years and they always missed Thanksgiving. When they bought this bar, she would throw a party for all the boaters who didn’t have anywhere to go for Thanksgiving. Her brother was a cross dresser, dressed in an evening gown and heels, it was so much fun! They sent us home with so much food we didn’t have to cook for days!”
