I am:
A home builder, Just Looking
What boat (s) are you building or do you own?
I have build a Pahi 42 called Rangoon Moon in 1986-1988 in Bahrain.
Country, City, and State?
About me or us?
Finally after 26 years we've digitalized and edited the original VHS tapes. It was 1988 in Bahrain that we worked like hell to finish the building of our Pahi 42 catamaran, a James Wharram design. You can watch the results here: http://hotelsforbooking.com/posts/bas-van-gaalen1.html. This is the film we made from the construction and the voyage "Sailing through the first Gulf War in 1988" the first Gulf war between Iran and Iraq, towards the coast of India and the Maldives. Some 26 years later the film is there and includes interviews of Agnes (my wife) and myself done by VanHarte-Productions in Amsterdam. It's funny to see yourself in 1988 and 2014. It seems to be special material because of the time and the war going on around us. We were at that time the only sailing yacht going through The Gulf. Watch the story with images and film here: http://hotelsforbooking.com/posts/bas-van-gaalen1.html. If you have problems, you can use this link: https://vimeo.com/108095310
Looking to?
See how the Wharram world is today, still have warm feelings by these catamarans.
For those who are interested, I'm doing portrait painting nowadays. http://basvangaalen.com
