Visit from John Neal

by | Aug 12, 2020 | 0 comments

More visitors! John & Amanda from Mahina Expeditions stopped in to evaluate what we purchased. John has been helping cruisers purchase boats for 40 years and helped us out in the beginning to ensure we had a good start for this project. We filmed our pre-purchase meeting with them, and then again on this visit. They will be making routine stops to the Marine Technology Center to check on our progress.

 John has been taking people sailing on the ocean for more than 40 years. He started on an Albin Vega 27′ and wrote a book called the log of the Mahina, I read it when I first moved to Washingotn state and purchased a 27′ sailboat. John has also sailed a Westsail 39′ and reports we won’t be disappointed, they sail GREAT!

John & Amanda had met with Matt and Mike at Marine Tech when they first started talking about purchasing an “offshore” capable sailboat.
