Despicable! Hong Kong is a rotten toxic place to live in!!! The greed and lack of compassion shown by HKRI is nothing short of criminal. Karma will get them in the end ����

Just got a quote to tow mine to the typhoon shelter. No plug-ins available and 5 day max stayover. Looking for quote to send mine on a container ship down South. Anyone got any ideas ?
My missus has thrown a wobbly and flew down to MEL last night.

Also, you can get your debenture back immediately but must vacate marina within 7 days.

Two berths at Gold Coast but not for liveaboards, only berths.

My understanding is that the boat owners would prefer that there not be any public comment outside of their nominated reps. They deserve all the support we can give them. HK at it's worst.

MM. The WhatsApp chat group is a hive of activity and I understand a local radio station is doing interviews in the marina as I write this. HKR has given a public statement in the local rags.
CX to put out a statement reminding boat owners that the allowance is only payable if the boat remains their sole/permanent residence in HKG.

If CX do that it will push all boat owners over the edge such that there will be 100 pilots unfit due stress with one sweep of the pen. A considerate employer wins dividends in the long run ..... CX is doomed.

I ship all my boats around the world with -

freight plus dot com

Not affiliated with them at all, just used them a lot and they are pretty good at it.

Happy to talk via PM for anyone interested in getting contact details

As I reported yesterday, the DFO has made an announcement and the company will "reach out" to the DB boat owners !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well certainly to at least one called PC.

As I recall there were some ‘seniors’ on the 3rd floor in the ‘same boat’, so that might help in an outbreak of compassion.

You need to READ what is written and stop shooting off half cocked. All I said was the company would make a statement and it has. I happen to know that the company is looking to assist the boat owners. So wind you neck in.

Hot off the press.
CX considering providing "one off loans" to help boat owners pay off their personal loans when the companies call them in. The first such call in of outstanding debt arrived in the post today.

Unitedabx—-no mate you actually said more than “CX will make a statement”, in fact you went further:—“CX to put out a statement reminding boat owners that the allowance is only payable if the boat remains their sole/permanent residence in HKG”

They didn’t do that did they, they appear to be acting with compassion.

You directly tell me to wind my Neck in whilst at the same time your Head seems to be stuck somewhere unpleasant.......

Will it help?

I'm not sure how the transfer of debt helps these families. They will still be homeless while having the same debt and a virtually valueless boat/debenture in many cases.
A truly dreadful situation for them.

Well I guess it keeps the bailiffs from the door. Presumably the $20k currently going to the marina club in mooring/service charges will go a long way towards a small flat in Tung Chung until they shift the boat.
Back in the day when junks were around 1-2m, buying and paying off a junk was seen as a way of syphoning the owner occupier allowance, and then selling the junk as soon as it was paid for (and of course buying another from a fellow pilot). There was a running gag about how many times the CX allowance had paid for certain of the older junks.
