Guam

Any board members living on Guam? I'll be there next month for a couple of days and would like to look at boats.

Thanks,

Bill

boatgm does. I remember because he has a great boat name. Carabao.

I lived there years ago (the 90s). There wasn't a lot of marinas, yards or used boats back then. Try to get to the military bases. The most boats for sale I found were down in the Sumay marina at Apra Harbor. Might get a deal from a military member leaving island.

I visited Guam last year (spring of 2011) and spent a couple of day driving around seeing some of the sights. I saw very, very few private "yachts" in Apra Harbor. Most of the "recreational" boats were sport fishers and charter operators. My impression was that there were not a big used boat market on the island. It will be interesting to hear about what you find.

Good point to check the base. I won't have any problems getting on the bases.

Guam

I live in Pago Bay. Guam is a hard place to keep a boat.
The typhoons are strong and common.
I would enjoy showing you around but am on my boat till after Christmas.
There is a group of traditional boat builders near the Baseball stadium, they meet on Saturdays and are friendly folks, the Marianas yacht club is also a great place for a meal and some boat talk.

Fun thing to do.
Every Saturday, Guam Boonie Stompers offers public hikes to a variety of destinations such as beaches, snorkeling sites, waterfalls, mountains, caves, latte sites, and World War II sites. We meet at 9 a.m. in the center court of Chamorro Village in Hagta. The cost is $2 for hikers over 12.

if you are looking for used boats in the area I think Hong Kong is a good place to look.

Al, thanks for the great information. We'll be there until Sunday night late, then back January 11th only to change planes back to Kwajalein.

Looking at your website. Now that is a slick boat. How is it working out, as planned I hope?
