Re: Getting to enjoy the benefits of the South African healthcare system

Yikes, that hurts just to read it... really sorry to hear of this, my best wishes for the best possible outcome...

Consider yourself to be at the forefront of a new paradigm for cruisers: Namely, the use of cruising boats for Medical Tourism, which I am afraid will become increasingly more common for us Americans... (grin)

Your story is also a sobering reminder of the dangers that can occur when dockside, especially on boats the size of yours... Some of the forces that can be involved, one can get hurt very easily...

Best of luck, take it easy down there...
