My name is Garry Kingshott, an Australian national, recently relocated to Manila, Philippines on contract to run the country's largest LCC airline Cebu Pacific Air.

Just had a three year stint in Mumbai ( also in airline business) where there was no sailing to speak off. The Philippines is a different story, and just yesterday closed a deal on a 2000 Beneteau 411, named 'Serenity'

As I will be here for three to five years, hope to do plenty of coastal cruising and may or may not take it home to Oz with me when I leave. Vessel is Australian registered,( previous owner also an Australian) which is a bonus if I do take it home, but tracking it's history seems to have been owned by someone from the US originally. Am sure I can research it back from hull number somehow.

Anyway, as today is one of those two great days in any sailor's life thought I would jump on board your site.

Am sure I will have some questions for you as I get to know my new yacht and it's equipment.

Nice to be a yacht owner again.

Welcome aboard!

Looks like you've got a great few years ahead!

If our Simon could bring his "new" boat to Oz from San Fran, (and he did in fine form) I'm thinking you might do the same.
