Hi crew mates.
I知 an English
expat, RYA Yachtmaster
trained, who left the stunning sailing area of South-West England
16 years ago when my career took me to mainland China
However during my exile I married my beautiful Filipino wife and built my dream home on the stunning island province of Palawan.
Now rapidly approaching retirement
, I want to use my time and explore the 7000+ islands in this breathtaking archipelago.
But first I need a boat!
My first thought was to build s small 8m cat, ideal for coastal sailing particularly around the coral
islands around where I live..... but that takes time to build!
More recently I致e been offered s TC42 mermaid ..... beautiful yacht but in need of serious TLC, but only cosmetic!
So I plan initially to use this forum and the internet
to find out as much as possible about this yacht as I can. MAINLY..... it is just too damn big!
