Ishmael’s new home

For friends and family, an Ishmael update. After trekking around the Pacific on Evohe, tracking and backing the Waka fleet (see: fijivoyaging.com) he’s jumped ship. Now on a superyacht (owned by the underwriter of the waka enterprise) called Foftein 11.

At present in Tonga.

So there goes a young man named after a schooner his old man stayed on, which was named after the lead character of Moby Dick “Call me Ishmael”.  He spent his 12th year afloat full-time, but the boat (google: Seawind 24) was a far cry from Foftein 11.

Bother, but I guess the boats are there, and someone has to use them……
