Thumbs up Hello From New Canadian Members

My name is Brian, my wife's name is Lynda. We are complete newbies. However I have spent lotsa time at sea when I was younger and worked on my Dad's fishing boat in the North Sea. We have recently ordered a 2015 Lagoon 421 which is named Can-Vik Cat and will be registered in BVI. If everything goes according to plan we will be leaving Les Sables D'Olonne appx December 14, 2014. We plan on staying in Las Palmas for a few days before heading on to St. Martin. Hopeing to arrive there sometime in the 2nd week of 2015. The Cat is bought thru Harel Yachts in st. Martin.

Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Brian & Lynda

Welcome aboard.

Suggestions? Okay: take more money and less clothes, and bring sunscreen.

Cheers,

Ann

I suggest that you let my wife and I take your new cat for most of December, January and February, so that we can debug the new boat and have her completely ready for you by March.

No need to thank us, we're just giving people.

(Best of luck, and fair winds)
