OK, many of you folks know I work overseas. Over the last few months..., being a part of sailnet has been awesome. I hope to meet and or sail with many of the folks I have met on Sailnet...
While here in Pakistan, I spend a lot of time looking over used sailboats online. I actually had one picked out was ready to buy but someone beat me to it. Such is the life of an expat.
While online from my office or house, I am able to search sailboatlistings.com, however when in the field, I am blocked by a simple note that says in essence... "you cant shop here." I actually spend most of my time in the field.... When I can get on the site, I see no place on the website that allows me to contact the owner or operator of the site. Does anyone have an email address? Is there a way around this "Block"... perhaps, but with no way to contact the folks over there it makes for long nights in hotels without pubs, dance halls or other entertainment.
It is my hope to buy a boat before I return to the USA in December or January. There is a good chance (80/20) that my next work site will be in the Caribbean.... I'd like to sail there. Kind of hard if I cant find a boat where my sailing friends can go look at it for me....
Thanks for any help.
