Hello from new member in the Philippines

Hello, I am Sven - a Scandinavian living in Cebu, Philippines.
I am thinking to get myself a boat this year, in order to cruise a bit around the local area... hence have been browsing these forums for a while.
I have had a number of vessels in the past (fibreglass power boats) and was also living aboard a canal boat in England for 3 years.
Will probably come back with some more specific threads soon..!
Happy New Year, and all the best,
S.

Howdy and Ahoy Sven!

Welcome to the forum too.

I hope you enjoy your time here, and will post something in the future about sailing in the Philippines. I hope to do some sailing there in the future.

Living on a canal boat looks cool too, whether in England or France or elsewhere. I have been amazed while seeing some of the narrowboats and how some folks fix them up as live-aboards.
