It is Finally Done - Hong Kong

Hi all

I have been reading the forum for quite some time now but always as a "sailor wanna be", today the dream came true when I became the happy owner of a Shipman 28.
Now I would be interested in getting to know the sailing community in Hong Kong.

And soon enough I will start posting about tips on how to restore it to its original beauty, thanks in advance!!!

Cheers
Andres
