I'm not sure about that. Maybe the boats (although there are good deals to be found because ex-pats contracts expire and boat owners have to move back to UK, OZ, US, etc.) Chandleries definitely cheaper. Unless things have changed significantly in 3 years, the best bargains on rigging
, cordage, etc. by far are to be had by haunting the HK chandleries.
RONNIE -- I left you a telephone number on your blog for a guy in HK who is a good friend of mine and might still know his way around the local boat market. He's a first-class, standup pom (Brit).
