Hello from Kawthoung, Myanmar

Hello Cruisers worldwide!
I spent the last couple of years sailing for other people, mostly on board Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrior, but also bunch of smaller yachts along the US coast to the carribean.
Now I am going back to my old love the marine Biology and for that purpose got a 45ft sailing catamaran donated, that currently is located in Kawthoung, Myanmar and of course came with a whole list of issues that we are attempting to sort out one by one.
However in the end, we hope to run research Expeditions into the Mergui Archipelago along the coast of Burma, doing charting work, establishing a Marine Megafauna database of the region as well as sample for microplastics and work with the local Moken people - the last seafaring nomads in the world. Hope everything works out in the end somehow...
Fair winds and calm seas!

Welcome to the forum.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"
