I am sitting at February Point waiting on Jay's arrival. His flight from FLL was delayed a couple of hours and they finally took off with only Jay on board! Too funny. He will be here soon.

Early this morning when looking at the weather I made a decision to leave tomorrow instead. A front just through yesterday and conditions look great to continue tomorrow. Weather into early next week is looking good as well so I am optimistic that we will get the full trip to BVI in.

This afternoon I will take Jay to Chat n Chill for lunch and a cold one as well as Tropic of Cancer Beach to get some pics and Go Pro video. I will see if we can post something more tonight.

Wow, if you didn't have all the gorgeous pics to back up this and all previous trips it would be hard to believe. Have fun, be safe & God's speed!!! By the way, is there a Bobthe builder "crew" enrollment sheet I missed somewhere?

Since you mention pics here are a few from today. Maybe more later. Going out for dinner now. Jay's pics are just totally awesome. He may start his own picture thread. Thanks for the well wishes.

Unreal colors in the waters down here.
Got a few to share, more later.

Bob at work, and Predator on the beach at Chat N Chill.
Plus a few from the airplane on the way in to Exuma.
I was the only passenger on the plane.

Default Fuel story

So about 4 PM after Jay and I finished our visit to Chat n Chill and cruising the inside passage we go to the local fuel dock to fill up. Guy says sorry, we are out of diesel. Bob - So when will you have it? Answer - Don't know. The fuel boat is in Cuba ! Bob - so where can I get fuel ? Well, try walking over to the Shell station and maybe they can have their fuel truck come to the dock. So I go over and they said , sure. How does next Tuesday sound, Monday is a holiday. Grr. I then call Emerald Bay about 15 miles to the north and they close at 5 but agree to wait for us. So we are all fueled and ready to go in the morning. $ 4.33 gal.

Can't wait to see tomorrow's pics. Glad you were able to get fuel up north. Sounds like emerald must be opened back up. They were having some financial troubles the last time I was down there and the marina was closed.

Sandals bought the place.

Probly be tomorrow night at the earliest before I post any more... we've got 280 miles of ocean to deal with first.
Weather is looking very good for the next several days.

Love the reflection of the plane in the nose cone here.
