The fishermen all over World usually were very kind, helpful and they appreciate my venture.
They let me to stay in their dock, gave me fresh fish, sometimes clothes,
but first of all kind words and good advices.
They live so close to the sea as nobody else.
I admire their job, courage, knowledge and wisdom. Fair winds for you all...

Simrad Customer Support
After Aron's TP-10 tillerpilot failed, he has bought a new one in Bridgetown (Barbados)
and he sent home the wrong one. A very kind fellow worker of the Customer Support
(let's name him Rob :-) helped in the guarantee procedure.
The TP-10 was replaced with a renewed one. That was sent back to Panama city, as a back-up tillerpilot.
Somehow the new pilot went wrong when Aron was heading to Galapagos, so the back-up pilot was very useful.
Simrad, 'Rob', thank for that.
Meantime the replaced TP-10 also went wrong. We would need Simrad's help again...

Kalamata Marina , Greece
Ms. Medea Kastanou, the leader of marina reception, answered to my mail,
that they would be pleased to see Aron in Kalamata.
Aron has really spent in marina a week at no charge.
Medea and all the staff were very kind and helpful with him.
She also contacted the local press and TV, and Aron was interviewed by them.
The yachtsmen in the marina were also kind and helpful,
they helped him in taking out the mast and in putting it back after the mast-job was done.
The marina, Kalamata city itself and the neighborhood is really beautiful.
So Aron enjoyed very much the time he spent there,
that will be an other memorable experience he felt during his 3-years trip.
Many thanks Medea, the staff and the yachtsmen he met. Efaristo.
