Can someone elaborate on the following appeared on p. 8 of Spidey's notes

Sentence in focus: I haven't visited Bora Bora, and I probably never will visit Bora Bora.

Spidey considers this sentence wrong with the explanation "since visited and visit are different".

My question is how else can one depict it? I truely see nothing wrong in it. Please explain or verify that the sentence is actually correct.

That "explanation" is not right, there's nothing wrong with that sentence.

It's a little repetitive, usually you'd just say "...and I probably never will." and ellipse the 2nd verb ... but it's OK to use it if you want, and there's nothing wrong with using past and future tense in one sentence like that.
