Re: Hi from Lebanon

Hi Samwind and welcome.

Do you plan to keep a boat in Lebanon? How are things going in the area these days? From what I can hear on US news seems a little more settled than in the past.

Regards

Hi,

Sure I am looking for a boat, I ve been looking for 6 month now and have some leads, it takes some time to find the right catch. Things here are defenetly more settled, still a long road to normal...

Cheers,

Well it only took me 30 years to find the right catch.

But I'll bet you can do it in less.

Good luck on the search.
