he lives in Hillsboro, Florida and keeps the ship in the Virgin Islands area in the winter. I see it down there every winter.

Ecstasea was in port in St. Thomas this February.....It dwarfed them all....................

Moran seems like a pretty good guy to his people. One of his businesses was a client of mine and his campus in FL is consistently rated as one of the best places in the country to work. They have onsite cleaners, barbers, gym, pool, all sorts of stuff. They also have Christmas parties on one of the Gallant Ladies

"rising sun" is larry ellison's yacht. it's actually 452'9" built by lurssen werft in germany. designed by martin francis

post #5 is "northern light", a 46-meter Feadship owned by a Swede and with a very classic interior design by John Munford, and "Passion", a 53-meter Swedeship which was completely refitted recently in Spain following a string of incidents including being dropped on her side while she was being put back in water from drydock.

Rumour has it that Clapton has purchased another yacht, a 156' Kees Cornelissen called "Va Bene"...

BTW, that Chesney yacht looks like a Sea Ray.

stayed at the frenchmen's reef fro a couple of days before getting on the McGregor II for a week...

jt, do you know tim and julie from the mcgregor? they're on a mooring right off crown bay marina...
I've seen the boat but never met them before. We would try to sneak down to tickles whenever we could for lunch.

Willy T, now theres some pictures I need to find... took a 26 twin V over there in 10-12 ft seas one day, probably best time I had down there. Well that and every time we went to Woody's.

tickles is the bar/resteraunt at crown bay marina, Willy T i've only gone to during the day

I'm back in the states now, atleast till the end of summer, once cold weather arrives back here again I might find my way back down there. Next time I won't be doing parasail tho, too much stress for the winter, most captains down there have cake jobs and we ran around stressed and working like maniacs all the time. Summer is enough stress for me.

You forgot to mention the masseuss'. I had a friend who went to Deerfield and worked there for a while. Right before he got the job, he met a girl. Couldn't handle the long distance relationship so he came back.
