I just signed up a few minutes ago and would like to greet you'll and introduce myself.
My name is Marciano Geerman from Aruba
and we delivered a Tayana 55 last April to Aruba
from Ft Lauderdale and it's my new home.
Have sailed between Florida
and the Caribbean
and Venezuela/Colombia/ Panama
often, specially being part of a delivery
team to Santa Martha/Cartagena Colombia
and San Blas/Colon PanamŠ from Aruba.
Did crossed the Atlantic 21 years ago from Tenerife Canary Island to St Maarten in 19 days( drifted 2 1/2days in the douldrums). I loved it and caught several Mahi Mahi to feed the 4 of us.
We did bought the MK 38 1989 Irwin
Morningstar in 2002 and sailed it with a team to Aruba and started the Morningstar private sailboat charters and did it for 6 years before heading back as a director of engineering at the Radisson hotel
and the 900 room Aruba Marriott Surf Club.
Kat did continue chartering successfully until now with SV/Morningstar.
They say you can run but can't hide, I knew soon I would be back where I belong, on the Caribbean
waters for now and serving our charter
guest with a caring heart. When opportunity knocks a quick sail boat delivery
south or north to keep my system in balance and I'm a happy man(fishing while sailing is very important, I love to cook for the team to lean spirt high).
Greetings and hope to say Bon Bini (welcome in our local language Papiamento) to some of you when you arrive to our wonderful Island of Aruba heading south/north or on vacation
. I may be able to assist with information about going south, the waters, ports
Have a great week,
