We come home from dinner and our boat is gone – a true nightmare for any boat owner. Yes, we are re-posting this Pre-Covid video to keep the timeline straight, but we hope you enjoy the updates we made…
Kito Sylvain’s Bora Bora Moorings Services (“BBMS”) took possession of all the moorings in Bora Bora two months earlier and he gladly took our money without ever checking the condition of our mooring. After it broke, it was up to us to save our sailboat, only to have him deny any responsibility and his insurance companies supported his efforts (Assurcare and Helvetia). His negligence caused us and our insurance company hundreds of thousands in damages and a half a year of disappointment. It’s modern day Piracy at its best… Welcome to paradise: a Bora Bora nightmare.
POSTING LIVE UPDATES ON SOCIAL:
ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on our “dream boat,” a performance catamaran named “Archer.”
Ten years ago, before kids, we sailed a Lagoon 380 named “Honeymoon” halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences with family and friends via YouTube, and by happenstance created one of the earliest sailing channels still posting. We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with our kids.
OUR ROUTE has taken us from the Boston/Cape Cod area of the United States down to the Caribbean and through the Panama Canal. At the time of posting this we have dealt with the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand, a category 5 cyclone in Fiji, and now we are cruising again in Covid Free Australia.
PLEASE COMMENT!: As a “family channel,” we are required to actively monitor all comments, but we still want to hear from you. Tell us what you think!
