Since childhood, the sea was at the center of his world, the origin of his feeling free, inspiring him optimism, filling him with spontaneity and energy, painting his dreams with fun and trust.

He left his coastal town to study in the capital, but the nostalgia to sea was overwhelming, bringing him back to the shore on weekends and vacations.

Led by ambition he studied engineering and excelled, so he was chosen to build uranium mines infrastructure, but the financial gain in such a dry life would not erase the happy childhood feelings, hence he started over leaving behind the job brilliance and the financial abundance.

In Walvis Bay port, where he was born in Namibia, he found a job at a touristic boats company, driving one of them to show customers nature's wonders and projects at the port; innovating ideas found by creative minds, self-confident characters and strong wills.

One of them established metal structures over seawater upon which numerous birds at port leave its residues to be exported as fertilizers to Europe, another imported baby oysters from Chile, to be grown in barrels, spread over the water, then sold in local market and exported to consumers who enjoy its unique nutritious value whatever costly they are.

The boats swim at the port, the tourists bedazzled by intact nature, pure colors, fresh weather, abundant seals and dolphins and birds of various types, and “Ingo” that left engineering to be a sailor found himself in the sea full of vitality and youth, transmitting his happy feelings to the customers with attractive communication ways, that ultra passed humans to animals and birds at the port, recognizing and feeling familiar to him.

He whistles to the birds so they flock in groups over the boat to pick the fish he offers to them and to the seals. The latters that drag their bodies creeping on land can rush like torpedoes to catch speeding boats, to go onboard searching for food and amusing the tourists taken by harmony and purity with animal, bird, nature, and climate.

Coming back from a trip they feel renovated vitality with a confident smile, merry spirit, and precious photos.

Ingo then started work for himself with a small motorboat, but his love to sea and creatures and his abundant happy ways brought him clients and gains, so he used his study, experience and time to design and build a luxurious modern big catamaran boat, fitting with practical considerations, operational requirements while reducing future maintenance costs, using the potential of a regional specialized company, hence saving one third of the boat price.

My last trip was on board of the new catamaran, I shared with Ingo his happiness for achieving his dream, so he told his story.

I saw how he insisted on self-achievement, on that his work becomes his pleasure, on leaving the abundance to start from scratch searching for harmony, to abandon sand and minerals to reach over to humans, animals, and birds, on having his private business and using his studies to make the best investment quality and price wise, on staying free and spontaneous to enjoy vitality with full spirit and to spread happiness around.

Ingo and the investors of oysters and metal structures are examples of free minds, young hearts, and conscious wills.

They made useful lucrative business with minimal investments and creative ideas. They prove once again that the real wealth lies in educated humans and sane personalities, and that free thinking, whatever fears the consequences can bring, is a basis for nations to prosper.
