After the chaos subsides and things are normal again

Was despondent when my gig as guest presenter onboard the Golden Princess was cancelled. However looking around, so many people are facing much more severe hardship than me.

As a pick me up and a nugget of good news amongst all the gloom, I just jagged another Guest Presenter role, this time onboard Royal Caribbean’s Serenade of the Seas, departing Honolulu in mid September. Hopefully the Covid-19 crisis is behind us by then.

Sold this beautiful boat 30 years ago

Thirty years ago I was a Boat Broker with Markwell Brothers, where I sold this georgeous bay cruiser “Royce” to a new owner in Townsville. I saw her this week at Rivergate and she has been impeccably maintained.

Spotted this beauty at Rivergate yesterday. She is a 1924 Camper and Nicholson 60′ ketch which featured in the movie The Great Gatsby.
