Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Seasonal greetings Ben, I trust you had successful feats of strength, and a good airing of grievances. I cast the chicken bones this morning, and 2014 will indeed be a good year. Thanks for doing such a great job for all of us.

    Happy Holidays to Everyone, especially the many readers that comment on each entry and forum, adding their experience, color and/or commentary to Ben’s extraordinary marine electronics blog and hub.

    Almost too late to say Merry christmas or “prettige kerstdagen?”
    See you all in 2014.

    Thanks all, and I especially appreciate Dan’s tip of the holiday hat to all Panbo commenters. Yes!
    Incidentally, you can see the beautiful spot where Kees is aboard Merrimac via Panbo’s Marine Traffic widget here:
    MT is usually accurate about the last location a given vessel was spotted by it volunteer network but I’m surprised today to see that Gizmo was last seen three days ago near Auckland, NZ? Which is odd as I just visited her in the boatyard (where skates might be safer to get around in than shoes).
    The weather appears to be somewhat more moderate in the Frisian Islands but hats off to Kees and his marina mates for extreme holiday cruising 😉

    Hi Ben,
    I think I remember reading about a new Seawind Catamaran with the boat name Gizmo, and I think it may have been a show boat from the new building place.
    That might have been the one noted on the MT if they took a trip to NZ ?.
    Kind Regards,
