    Hi Adam,

    How are you? I “m Rommy, I bought your boat Air Gadis in Singapore, We never got to meet personally during the course of the procurement. Anyway, Hope everything is fine with you. The boat is at Ponggol boat yard for repairs and inspection ,I’m planning to sail it to the Philippines. Singapore as you might have experienced, is not an ideal place to sail, with all the restrictions and traffic around. I have to rent a transponder before I can sail. The boat has a DCS/AIS, but I dont know the code. Do you have the code ? I would have to register it so I wouldn’t have to rent a transponder everytime I sail out . BTW the Blog about your sailing trip was very interesting, I enjoyed reading it. Hope I can have the same fun as you guys had with Air Gadis. Looking forward to hear from you,
    Best Regards,
