Three times what?


Hubert Hofer of Thursday Island in MV TIGA KALI is the latest honorary member to be admitted to the Nelligen Yacht Club.

Hubert bought TIGA KALI (Indonesian for 'Three Times') as an empty 21’ shell in ’87, extended it by 2 m and fitted a 1978 85 hp Toyota B Diesel with a twin Disc gearbox. Gets about ½ litre/naut mile and has 2½’ draft and cruises at 7.2 Kn.
