Profile Information

I am:
A home builder
What boat (s) are you building or do you own?
Currently without a boat.
Country, City, and State?
Germany, Wilhelmshaven
About me or us?
I was looking for a boat in which to sail to Australia, and I had dreamt of building a Tiki since I was a child. The refit idea seemed more appropriate in my situation and I don't regret it.
Looking to?
I owned a Tiki 31, spent a year and a half refitting the boat, then sailed around English Channel and the a north Brittany coast for a summer. Sold her for a job in Germany.
