We are Melanie, and John from N.E Florida
for now. Mel is originally from the Philippines
, and I am originally from Oakland Ca. Mel is a bit new to sailing, and I have been off, and on other peoples boats since 76. I have been a boat owner since 90. My first boat being a 30ft. Columbia
that I only recently sold. My current
boat I have owned since 02.
After our marriage in 03 we flew to St. Maarten from the Bay Area to board Imagine. Imagine is a German built cold molded catamaran
based on a Simpson 13.7 design.
Since then we have spent 4 seasons sailing the east side of Florida
to Key West
, and covered most of the Bahamas
to Crooked Island.
We are gearing up to sail for the Philippines
in several years, and make many stops between. Our plan is to explore the Philippines with Imagine, and live life as well as we can. Looking for to share information with all that are here.
I am on another forum for cars, my second passion, and I will use someone's quote from there. No one of us is as smart as all of us.....John
