I MISS THE BOAT
Having spent so many years cruising in the North Sea, Skagerak, the Baltic
, both leisure and commercial
, I thought enough is enough.. and sold my beloved m.s. Eight Bells last year before leaving Norway.
Although the seasons in Norway and Brazil is opposites, I was still getting that restless feeling of anticipation prior to starting a new charter
season. Old habits die hard I guess.
I have a 16 foot alu. runabout here with a 50hp Evinrude
that gets me around here among the hundreds of tropical islands and secluded beaches, but it´s not the same.. once you´ve had your own "ship" it´s not the same trading down. If it had´nt been for the 56% import
duty here I would have sailed the boat over...
I have several friends here with larger craft and I am forever involved in exciting projects here as you can see from my web-site: http://www.yachtmarine.com
I can thoroughly recommend the cruising area between Rio and Santos, the Costa Verde.. with excellent yachting facilities in Rio. Buzios.,Cabo Frio, Angra dos Reis, Parati, Ubatuba, Saco da Ribeira, Ilhabela, Santos/Guaruja.... and what more... the girls are friendy and the booze is cheap
. ( So is cost of living generally)
WELCOME TO PARADISE !! (but bring your boat)
