Well I got the exact same message from him last June! When I arrived to panama the boat was in serious neglect and the workers told me he hadn't been seen for a year.
They also told me that I was the only one to look at it in six months.
I highly doubt he's been back there since I left, he only went out on it twice as far as I know once he " restored" it.
I'm pretty disappointed that he is still sending out the same crap, guess he's just been waiting for the right sucker to come along. Thank god it wasn't me in the end!
By the way I have the boat series number somewhere, it used to be owned by a Swiss couple I think I recall
finding out back then....
