Re: Hi from Papua New Guinea

Hi Derk,
I came up to Madang PNG about 4 years ago and Walter was moored in front of our house and had been for about 5 years, I bought it about 2 years ago and it is still an ongoing project.
Walter was seized by PNG customs for bringing guns into PNG and sold at auction where Glynn bought it and 7 years later I bought it from him,
It seems Walter had a chequered past bringing guns to PNG and dope down to Oz...Will be interesting when I finally get back to Oz on Walter.
I have been unable to find out much before then.
Cheers Andrew
