Every now and then you meet people who make a difference. They know what needs to be done, they share your passion and commitment and they do all they can to help you succeed. They assume control without taking over, their ego doesn’t get in the way of proceedings and their ability, experience and knowledge is evidenced in all they do.
I met one such person recently. His name is Steven Cullinan and he owns a business called Professional Marine Management; such a true-to-label business name!!
It was about 2 months ago now. Steven was working on a boat near by while co-owner Barry and I were contemplating the mammoth task ahead of us in preparing Chimere for sea and fulfilling the MSM Vanuatu 2013 Mission. We said G’day to Steven and invited him aboard to have a look.
The rest as they say is history. And as far as this year’s mission goes, it’s success will very much be HIS story – that’s Steven’s story, because without his timely intervention on the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, etc fronts, we would have no story to tell.
Thank you for your work Steven. You’re a great guy and how you fitted into some of the tight spots aboard Chimere and also how you remained so clean all the time will remain a mystery
See you again in November upon our return.
We are currently heading around the coast from Westernport Marina (Vic) to the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) who will host our brief stay in Sydney prior to our departure to Vanuatu and the start of MSM Mission 2013. See the MSM facebook page for some more pics.
