One More SE Seahorse

And one more Seahorse - Hong Kong connection in a summer chock full of them, SV Sun Wah, a Seahorse motor-sailer Dorothy and I first saw in 2004 in the Seahorse yard in China, sailed into Sitka as the bad weather hit and got what was probably the last spot in the place. Mark & Deb, whose home is Australia, have been spending northern hemisphere summers the past 3 years, in Alaska and made the passage down from Prince William Sound this summer. I met Mark in HKG just a few months before he left HK to do the same North Pacific route to Alaska, which DavidEllis did in 2009. Sun Wah will winter over in Wrangell, where we will also be and hopefully we'll buddy up a bit for next summers' cruising before they continue down the West Coast.
