Thanks for the warm welcome all.
@Seevee, its a great place and yes, there are a lot of pilot/boaters here. Stanley is a great area, but now extremely expensive. No more flying at Kai Tak anymore, its now the cruise ship terminal, although it has a nice typhoon shelter behind it.
@Ted, the RR Merlin would have been a good investment, but only if you had kept it for 40 years or so!!
@healhustler, thats a real shame, but yes we do have an amazing maritime community here, and a very social club.
