I don't pay the Pylos guy anything. He's just a con artist. The Spatahori guy says "it's my job". But he does insist you do it his way! I used to over-pay to use the shower in Katakolon - but he did rescue a crew member who fell in when walking the plank. It's not easy to judge the number of fags to give some of the bureaucrats in Tunisia . . . not enough means a very long wait.

Get an idea of the time he spent with you. 30 euros per hour is very good. 50 euros per hour servicing you is extremely good!

Re: Volos -- unofficial dock manager -

thanks to all

he did a bit more than expected - and found people who could do the job

we gave him 100euro --

by the way we then got kicked off the dock there. more on Volos later but a very unfriendly town - kicked the dust off our shoes and left

but the guy was great and we did spend some time with him later - he just got a college degree and came back to live with parents while looking for a job - and all he wants to do is leave the town too -
it is probably the most unfriendly town we have ever been to

just our thoughts and opinions
