Ralph Munroe’s principal zest in life was designing yachts. Boats were a major form of transportation in the early days and yachting was a popular sport. Many South Florida pioneers commissioned Munroe to design their yachts. In his lifetime, the Commodore drew plans for 56 different boats. Micco, the last of Munroe’s boats in existence, was displayed here until Hurricane Andrew’s impact reduced the 101-year-old vessel to fragments. Egret, a replica of Munroe’s 28-foot modified sharpie, is now moored offshore.
