The “Soggy Paws”
64%. Sherry? Yepp. And Dave! They are the owners of the „Soggy Paws“. They are already
travelling the seven seas for more than 9 years. She’s 60 and he’s 70, and both simply super cool.
She’s engineer and rescue diver, and he a former diving officer with the US Navy. Therefore, we’re connected by more than just the love for wind and waves, but also by the treasures they like to hide below them. We hope to see much of it within the next weeks. The masters of the sea are very well prepared and even have six diving tanks and a small compressor on board. *yeahyyy*
60%. But actually all this began completely different and already two weeks ago. David and Sherry lay anchored in the waters around the resort I was working at, while they were diving with us. Yet diving in Raja Ampat is a completely different story that will be told elsewhere in due time. To cut a long thing short, we had a blast underwater, snapped countless pictures of nudibranches and other creepy critters, ate dinner together and had been invited to the „Soggy Paws“ one evening.
What followed was a mellow evening in the fading sunlight with fresh beers and „boat made“
popcorn. Dave and Sherry told us some of their best sailing adventures to which I listened devoutly. Eventually, one thing led to the other and following my motto „cheeky wins“, I simply asked: Could I join you to Palau?
The Answer came as swiftly as it simple: Sure!
And BUMM, I got on the crew list. Unbelievable. What was happening here?!?
