Farewell Jessica and welcome Anna

Jessica left Furthur today after a great month of fun, parties and many diving adventures. I had met her in Singapore, where she was doing volunteer work on an old and beautiful sailing yacht and we stayed in touch. She left her corporate job and flew to Phuket to join the Furthur crew.

Jessi came to Furhtur just after taking her open water dive course but with no dives logged, she now has over 20!! Deep dives, wreck dive, cave dives, night dives and dives in heavy current, she has done them all well.

It was a great joy having Jessi on board and I wish her well on Phi Phi where she will now work, live and hopefully continue to dive.

We picked up Anna this week also. Anna has been eager to get on Furthur ever since we first connected through Findacrew.net. She is our first “Southern Belle” and hails from the land of peaches, mint juleps and southern cooking, Georgia.

Also a new diver, I have taken her on several dives already and she does great. We spent last night anchored in the bay where “The Beach” was filmed. I asked her if she ever thought she would be spending the night on a boat in the bay when she saw the flick, no way was her answer.

After a few days, a rough passage and two dives I can tell she will be a great addition to the Furthur crew, Welcome Aboard!
