PH5 The Bertram

December 03, 2007

Except for a few "intermediate" years I've always owned a boat.  Seven of them.  That's why this boat will be called the PH8, to continue the tradition.  All of them, except for the last one, were power boats.



.The PH5 was a 1974 28 ft Bertram, with two 250 HP Mercury gasoline guzzlers.

In Summer 1976 I started off from Genova (Italy), went to Sicily visiting all the islands on the way, crossed over to Tunisia and then came back via Sardinia.  It was fun, fast and with the constant thought on my mind of where the next, expensive gas fill up would come from.
