this is cross-post from the Crew Wanted
forum. it's actually more than just crew wanted!
I have just bought a 2008 Lagoon 380
in Hong Kong
, and need to relocate it to Indonesia
as soon as possible.
I am completely inexperienced with yachts, and need someone to help me get to know the boat
, and to equip it for the long passage
(about 12 days with luck) to Indonesia
(Batam, to be exact, just across from Singapore).
The selling agent and previous owner have tried to be helpful, but I guess this is Hong Kong
, and they have other demands on their time, especially when dealing with a newbie.
It doesn't help that Hong Kong is completely new to me, and getting simple things done here takes soooo much longer than in Indonesia or Singapore
. (btw I am Australian born Indonesian citizen living in Jakarta.)
My funds are limited, but I am not going to scimp on equipment
that is truly needed for the passage
. I just need someone to show me what to buy and where.
btw, I may also be looking for crew and skipper
for this passage, depending on developments.
soooo, bottom line, is there anyone in Hong Kong with time on their hands who is willing to help a newbie? I am not asking for free help; am quite willing to pay reasonable costs. All comments and suggestions appreciated!
