"Cool..we met Russell off Moonwalker several times when we were up that way..what an awesome boat that is...I'm not sold on their tender though...I love inflatable ribs.
We do have lots of time to consider a venture to Vanuatu and I agree with…"
"Yes this isn't Sanyasin, its not a tiki46. I heard that Sanyasin was completely destroyed and smashed to pieces from friends who knows the owners. They must be heartbroken to lose everything but at least they are alive. I don't have any…"
