Meggi and I would like to personally thank you for your kind wishes and support during these difficult times. The way things look now it will be friends like you who save Vega and allow us to get back to our humanitarian work again.
When Vega was dropped by the boatyard, everything was damaged including the cameras, lights and computers we depended on to support our own expenses. You see, Meggi and I are not rich, nor are we any longer young. Vega is all we own. For fifteen years we volunteered our selves and the boat delivering tons of educational and medical supplies to remote islands in Eastern Indonesia and East Timor. This little “mom & pop” charity allowed us to keep Vega in good shape and gave us a mission in life we could be proud of.
Right now we are at the mercy of the boatyard and are being forced into accepting agreements or the work stops. Right or wrong we have no choice if we ever want to get out of here. I could write a book on the daily battles.
We could resort to a court case, but in Thailand that would require money we do not have and take years to resolve. During all that time Vega would be sitting neglected, slowly deteriorating and being eaten by termites. That is not the fate she deserves, so the struggle continues and we promise to keep you informed.
