TV series with a story behind the story
31 October 2003 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

On the "Seaspray" there was a black boatswain with an Afro haircut, who wore a Fijian Sulu skirt.

Actually, this boatswain (Leoni Lesinawi) was the owner of the "Seaspray", who leased it to the filming company and got the supporting part.

When the filming was over, the "Seaspray" belonged to him and no longer to the bank. He then established a travel agency called "Seaspray Cruises" in Nadi (Fiji Islands). The "Seaspray" still makes day cruises for tourists.

At least the "Seaspray" did so in 1986 when I visited Fiji, but the owner did not take part in the cruise.
