We had great evening abroad the Sequoia where the Florida House hosted our Fourth of July party. USS Sequoia is a former United States presidential yacht used from Herbert Hoover to Jimmy Carter, who had it sold in 1977 . Today the ship is privately owned. The yacht is 104 feet long, with a wooden hull, and was designed by John Trumpy Sr., a well-known shipbuilder. It includes a presidential stateroom, guest bedrooms, a galley and dining room, and was at one time retrofitted with an elevator for Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1987 the ship was designated a National Historic Landmark.
