Along came Marlene, Johan, Joe and Marco....

We had asked Rudi and Deslynn - if we could have the contact of the people they had built boats for... he sent us all of them.  What a wonderful amount of people - they ALL responded to our emails and were very happy to share about their boats.  What a wonderful help they have all been - we have to mention Paul Rackshaw - whose blogs were so valuable to us and of course sailing on his boat in South Africa, Peter Windsor - the first to buy a Maverick and bring her to New Zealand and Marlene, Johan, Joe and Marco - who are sailing the world on their Maverick, fulfilling their dreams...

Well it was Marlene, Johan, Joe and Marco who dry-stored their boat in Trinidad and sailed Peters boat to New Zealand... when we all met, we felt like we had known them for a long time.  They stayed in our home (which was on the market and had been for 6 months).  As a thank you, Joe (19 years old) decided to put together a website for our home -  What an amazing thing to do for us.  We loved our brief time together with them all.

  1. At the end of the day, we stay in a capitalist society the place the only real} purpose of business endeavors is to make money, no matter the expense to our lives, the environment, etc. Relying on corporate ethics inside such an environment to do the proper thing for social good is delusional. Yes, Apple is better than plenty of other corporations in some 점보카지노 issues.
