Many thanks,

Hi Adam,
The few used boats in HK I have investigated before going for a new one were much too big, even if a few really good deals were proposed. Besides, I was really lucky as my boat was completed in France, but noone to buy it, so I had a good deal, and ended up with a brand new boat for much cheaper than what I expected, and much cheaper than the few used boats I checked . 30 to 34 feet boat look like dingies in the marinas around here. I know Philippe has receievd his new Pogo 10.50 and his 8.50 Pogo is still for sale, but I don't know what program you are looking for (racing or cruising). Anyway, I will ask the guy who takes care of my boat in Causeway Bay with his sister. They know all the gossips of the marina, so they might know of some boats for sale. I'm a member of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, and will ask around, and I will also ask my friends from the Hebe Haven Yacht Club.
Will keep you posted.
By the way...what about a beer in the RHKYC some day ?

Hi Eric,
Thanks for passing the word around. I'm trying to get my hands on a Hallberg Rassy, but don't think there are too many in Asia. It would be good to catch in at the yatch club for a drink. I'm still thinking where to store the boat - either middle island or SaiKung. My email address is redplane@gmail.com. Drop me a note...
