 The Red Barron, first known as Zimmie, was a classic motor launch some 75 years ago that drew the eye of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, which he used for vacations. Today it is on its last leg, with the dream of Craig Jones of Marco Island to at least take its historical parts to make a 40-foot boat, staying faithful to the original style.
