AMBERJACK Repair/Replacement

Update posted by Gary Stokes On Feb 14, 2020


THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Today we have hit the target that we had hoped for to cover the cost of replacing our beloved old AmberJack. In fact we have slightly exceeded which is fantastic and these additional dollars will be used to cover some of the expenses to get the boat ready (hauling out to anti-foul and any additional safety equipment).

We hope to receive the boat next week after all transfer of ownership has been completed. Then we have to bring back from Tai Po to Lantau (couldn't have been any further away). We will however use the delivery trip to see what activities are going on in the Eastern waters of Hong Kong with a light to future IUU patrols on that side of HK.

Again, thank you to all who supported this. Besides the boat, it is truly heartwarming to feel the support for the work we are doing out on the water.

Looking forward to introducing the boat to any illegal fishing boats very soon......

Kindest regards,

Gary

As mentioned we have been searching for a replacement boat for AmberJack and can now confirm that we have found and secured a holding deposit on a new (secondhand) boat.

Our fundraiser has also had an incredible boost from an offline donor of HK$25,000 taking us up to HK$44,000 out of a target HK$65,000. Because of this very generous donation I feel very confident that we can close the gap and reach the target now.

Looking closer at the damage sustained we are most likely going to opt for a new (albeit secondhand) boat. We have been searching these past few days and think we have found a boat that is almost identical to Amberjack, a 5.2m Rigid Inflatable Boat. We are negotiating a price at present, up date to follow shortly but in the region of HK$70,000 is what will be needed.

We really appreciate the support so far and hope we can get back out on the water very soon.
