Wow, I just joined CruisersForum and was amazed to see 98 search results for 'Philippines'.
I lived in the Philippines
from age 2 to 18 graduating from high school
I bought a 40' Brown Searunner
(trimaran sailboat) in 2007 with the intent of sailing it back to the Philippines
, but only got as far as the Bahamas
I finally did come back to my roots in 2010 and married a Filipina. We have been living in Saudi Arabia where I work as a contractor and are coming back to the Philippines next year.
We are planning on building a 70' liveaboard charter
ferrocement junk style/rigged motor
sailer based out of Palawan.
Especially if you live in the PI, please give me a shout in English
or Tagalog, I look forward to hearing from you. I'll cook adobo for you if you have tales to tell about ferrocement in the Philippines.
