Nicky's Page

I am Nicky and I am the little guy on Namani. I like to play Lego which I have five boxes of, and I like macaroni. I also like big boats (that "big" is over 100 ft). But I also like racing sailboats and snorkeling.

My bunk on Namani is a pilot berth above the starboard settee in the salon (see picture below). If we make overnight passages I sleep in the cockpit (if it's not raining). I like my bunk and my stuffed animals are: Frodi, Mr. H (I didn't name him) and Fluff Egg (because he is made of fluff).

I like living on a boat because you see so many things that are different: First day in the middle of the ocean, second day you're seeing 500 fish...

I do wish we could have a faster boat because our cruising speed is five knots. I do like being on Namani but not when the bow rises 2 meters out of the water.

I'm nine years old and sometimes we meet other kids who I play with.

For school I go to the Mama and Papa School on Namani.

On this page you will find links to some of the things I reported on for school and also some of the other little projects I do around Namani.
