The Pan Oceanic Owners Group - "POG"
owners group was formed in early 2000, sprouting from an e-mail
from PO43 owner Tom Bradley. Tom's e-mail was to the few Pan Oceanic
owners he had discovered via the Internet, asking if there was interest
in forming an informal owners group. Keith Smith and Doug Dotson
responded yes, and three members strong POG was born. Keith volunteered
to provide this web site, which is how we have spread the word and
now grown to over 150 members.
POG does not publish a newsletter, but rather uses this web site
and a mailing list as the groups communications tools. Having no
real expenses, we don't have "dues and all that" in the
way many owners groups do. Frankly, we'd rather mess with our boats
than set up a separate bank account etc. for an owners group. So
no charge. All we hope for is your participation, sharing ideas
and experiences with other owners.

the Yahoo email list.
This web site continues to grow with info from POG members, all
sharing knowledge about their boats. Please email in information
& pictures about your boat. New projects. Cruising ideas. The
ways you've found to sail your boat better. The organization is
open to current and prospective owners of Pan Oceanic Yachts.
We do have one possible dues structure. If a POG member finds him
/ herself in another members town, they need to get together and
have a beer (actual beverage selection optional) and talk about
Thanks for learning more about POG. We really like our boats.
