We are totally new to sailing... never had time to get involved due to the pressures of running our businesses... BUT...our dream becomes reality in August when we take delivery
of our new Owners Version Admiral 38 Catamaran
in Cape Town
. The plan is to do what so many have done before us... and that is to circumnavigate, cruise
... have fun... and hopefully lose ourselves in the breathtaking beauty that many parts
of the world have to offer.
We have read many posts on these forums
slamming the South African Catamarans... and in a way quite rightly so... due of the quality of the Charter
Cats (Bumfuzzles Wild Cat and the Jaguar)
Please don't allow one stupid person's greed be the reason to generalise and think that all S.A. Boat Builders are the same. Since money
does not grow on trees and the fact that we are spending a small fortune on a new cat, we have done our research
and can assure you that Admiral Yachts
are one of the best built and highest quality one can buy in the world today. I also read the emails from Bumfuzzle. We actually went to Durban and by the time we got there, Charter
Cats had been closed down anyway. They no longer exist. I am not a nasty person, but THAT makes me happy... because the way I see it, they were playing with peoples lives by skimping on construction and they deserved to be shut down.
Anyway... as I said... we are novices and have much to learn... but we are learning
and will be back to chat, share etc.
Wishing you all just the right amount of wind
in your sails
at all times to make your journey practical, enjoyable and magical
