This site and the vessel Orion is dedicated to Joao Franjao, who tragically died while working on the "Orion of Aberdeen".
Joaoa was a truly genuine and wonderful person who helped me through the extremely difficult times and challenges associated with the rebuild of "Orion". He was aware of the personal cost to myself (loss of life savings) and being forced out of retirement to pay for the renovation of the "Worldwide Expedition Vessel".
