Jayboat,

So you ditched Ocean City for this... Not sure I want to be your friend anymore.

I did tip them tho and they are looking forward to our return. We did not get away till after 11 AM and that made it tough to do 300 miles to San Juan. After the first 40 miles the weather turned real nasty on us. A front came thru with wind, rain and seas picking up. For half the day we could only run 35 to 40 MPH safely. Every half hour the seas would change on us. 3 times I altered our course between the north and south shore of PR. After I concluded we could not get settled into a slip in San Juan before dark, I decided to head for the south shore which was the right thing to do.
I think we will just hang here for tomorrow and head across to BVI and get settled in there Thursday. I still have some steering issues that need looked at and there are mechanics here so will take care of that as well.
I will check our mileage but think it was in the neighborhood of about 240 - 260 miles which was decent given the conditions.
I will have to leave it to Jay to post pics. I had my hands full driving today
Bob,

Glad that you made it safely to Ponce
Make sure you check out the bright red fire house down town Ponce
be nice if you could meet up with Felix Serralles from Don Q rum they are in Ponce and Felix race the Don Q super Cat and also raced with the Victory Team from the Middle East
am sure some of the folks around the Ponce Yacth Club know Felix
Enjoy Ponce and have a great stay in Puerto Rico .

Thank you
Jim

Last night when the taxi was taking us to the Ramada he stopped in front of this firehouse. It was pouring rain and I'm tired saying "please, just get me to my Hotel". He obviously felt it was a must see for us so now I feel bad I did not show more interest. Jay and I will check it out today with pics. Someone at the marina told us about how quaint the Ramada is. Very nicely restored and was a good choice. Not your typical Ramada Inn for sure.
