Giddy up from many places !

Hi, Lifemiles (Marcel) says helloooooo to the CF community.

I've spent the last 10 years mostly on my boats, they have changed hands and been sold off so it wasn't always the same. i'm no engineer but I know my mechanics (had a boat workshop in the Caribbean, and spend my youth learning how to be a carmechanic) I am Dutch / German, spend most my time in Florida or on my boat though. much time in central / south America too.

I sail mostly with my wife Charinya and sometimes our kids (Nick and Phaty) join us if they find the time

Howdy and Welcome Aboard CF Marcel!

I hope you enjoy your time on the water, and on CF too.

Sounds like you have been enjoying the "Boat Life" already, so share some stories with us sometime.

For example, you have a BIG boat in your profile. I would like to see more of it.

This forum is a great place to learn, share some humor and knowledge, and a very good online community.

Fair Winds and Clean Fuel!

Steady

Well steady, here's my big boat in picture as she was on the hard last year in Greece, and graciously at anchor in the Canary Islands :-)

Re: Giddy up from many places !

Marcel,
Thanks for sharing the photos.
That is an impressive yacht! WOW!

I have never cruised or crossed an ocean on a boat like that, but I sure would enjoy trying it.

There are several former SuperYacht and other bigger boat (Commercial Ships or freighters, seagoing tugs, OFS boats, Navy officers, etc.) sailors and captains here on CF as members. We are a mixed group on CF, from dinghy sailors, perpetual crew, newbies, Old Salts, Circumnavigators, dreamers, and doers. I am sure your experience with your boat will be a good addition to our discussions. I hope you will share some of your POV when you can.

Something that big must keep you busy, and looks like a great responsibility too. Fun and challenges, I think.

TIP: Create a photo album on your Profile Page on CF and add those same photos to it.
