- Year Built / Launched: 1973
Bluebonnet - 1996
As near as can be determined, our boat was launched as Amy Rose, then subsequently was named Francesca, Diamond J, then Caroline, and for the last 27 years, Bluebonnet, ( the state flower of the Sovereign State of Texas)
She sank in Hurricane Rita in 2005. After a loving four-year restoration she was re-launched in 2006. She has happily sailed the Gulf Coast since.
