Was down there a few months ago(rented a Lagoon 44 catamaran sailboat with the flybridge) highly recomend this boat.

We were in Spanish Town on Virgin Gorda for a night and i saw a burned out Cigarette Topgun with the American flag paint job hauled out at the marina there ,it had 6s and big power.

Next night at Leverik bay in Virgin Gorda was awakened by a older 38 Cig that was kept there in front of a house.

Have seen the abandoned boats in the Bahamas but did not see any where i was in the BVI's.

I have been to the baths before, but the rest have not. I would like to see Willy T`s

The one thing I know is Woodys Happy hour starts 3pm sharp

Thanks for any help

yes, woody's is definately my hangout, dont miss happy hour...as for the trip, with 8 you will most likely have to take one of the larger boats most rentals/private charters are limited to 6 due to not being inspected. However 135 pp is not a bad deal for a good charter that hits all the hot spots. Main thing you will miss good sights like Willy T unless you go for a private charter. The trip you describe sounds like breakaway or limnos type trip which are usually pretty cool, but can have a bit of a crowd at times. If you have questions about specific companies or anything just let me know I'll give you any info I can.

No worries Ben.

The Skater I saw was to the right of Pussers if you are lookign at it from the water. It was a pearl orange and had either 4s or 5s on the back with no motors in it. There were a couple of locals there painting a 35 or 38 Cig flat deck adn several other performance boats were nearby. It looked to me that most were Tempests...

My brother in law saw the 38 Gun in Virgin Gorda and took some pics of it... I didn get up that far this time. We did Norman(WillyT), Peter and then Marina Key...

Spent a bunch of time in the Trunk Bay area too...

I coudn't agree more. I'd much rather sit back with a cocktail and take in the sights...

I was in Tortola about a month ago. Hit the Bomba shack too....pretty cool place. I forgot to get a T-shirt. They had them there with Bomba's head on the back....it was pretty funny.

If anyone is going down there anytime soon, I'll pay you to stop in the Bomba and pick me up a T-shirt.
