Who am I; I’m trying to be retired but have been a technical developer of some sort or another for over 30 years for some of the worlds biggest IT companies.
I do not put myself forward as a Marine expert; But I do understand how these things work and have personally built my own Marine MFD’s, NMEA integrations, Marine Ethernet and WIFI implementations, Lithium battery bank, BMS system, Charging systems, Solar, AIS etc. etc.
The problem seems to be where do you go for help?; Well I’ve decided, time to give back and if I can help, I’ll help.
Why?; I’m fairly new to this cruising/sailing lifestyle and have received huge amounts of help with never an ask for payment. So I guess giving back to that community and/or paying it forward.
Do you want to make money?; We all need money, but I figure if I give freely then perhaps I’ll create something of value. Maybe that will be a huge ring of friends? that’d do.
So if you need help, give me a yell, Open honest help will follow within the limits of my own knowledge.
I can be contacted via email (preferred to start) Greg@abbiss.co.nz or +447495739753 on WhatsApp.
A simple PDF that explains what's what on Waiata and hopefully will make your stay with us easy and more enjoyable. Covers everything from how to charge your phone, how a shower works, how we don't flush anything down the toilet that hasn't been through our bodies (yep no toilet paper on Waiata.. you should read that section) to how to launch the dinghy and our stereo system.
This is Lagoon's manual for the Lagoon 450S, which is what Waiata is. It's a handy read for us owners, but might be of interest to you if you're one of our friends coming as a guest. She's a great boat.
