Default Thank you OSO Expat and the Saba Rock Resort !!

I am now back in Canada for the next 10 days or so and looking very much forward to my return to the BVI and especially to Expat's Saba Rock Resort. I am struggling to put into words just how much I enjoyed my time at SRR and all that David did to make my stay, one of my best vacations... ever. I have memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you David for everything. You went way beyond what any resort manager would do to make us comfortable. You are first class and have become a valued friend. I just hope that someday I can return all the favors you have shown us this past while.
I love your Tiger and look forward to us running our boats side by side out to St Marten's on my return.
Chrissann is a gem and I appreciated her hospitality and friendship as well.
Again, thank you, thank you. Saba Rock rocks !!

I would like to add my congratulations, as well, to Bob and Jay for their great trip and for sharing their great adventure with everyone. My dad and I are very grateful to them for letting us be a small part of their adventure and for allowing us to enjoy their great company, along with David, Chrissann, Ron, Brant, and the rest of the group, during our weekend in the BVIs. We had to work real hard to get our boat ready in order to make it to the event, and hanging out with these great guys made it all worth it! Thank you for everything, guys, and we hope we can put together the same group someday and go for a run... the Tiger, Nor-Tech, Monza, Midnight and Apache...

Take care and we hope to see you soon,

Julian Jr.

Default Woo Hoo - we won !!

I just got a call from David. Nick the organizer of the Leverick Bay poker run called David to tell him we won $1,000.00. 5 of us bought a hand each for $250.00 and agreed to split the winnings. So we each now are only out $50 bucks !! LOL
I thought they should have had a prize for farthest distance travelled ! LOL
It was so much fun that winning anything really was not important. We got our money's worth and more.
Thank you Nick and all who put the poker run together.
Bob

Bob a quick story on why I bought a Tiger (love reading your threads BTW). My wife and her girlfriend went to Saba Rock (girlfriend lives in BVI's and knows David). They had a great time on his Tiger and came home with a ton of pictures. I got so gealous (LOL) of them and riding on David's boat I said dammit I can get one of those too!

Great thread indeed. As I think we are all starting to realize, the close of one adventure for BtheB is really just the start of another one brewing in his mind

Thanks for talking us along and posting all the pictures. The scenery is breathtaking and the stories are great, but I think the part I like the best is how through these darn websites, Bob and Jay can travel far, yet meet up with people they are familiar with.

I never realized there were that many offshores in the BVI, for those of you not living in the states or really for anyone, it would be great if you posted your location under your screen name.
