Julian. I have some great Go Pro video of your Apache running beside us. It may be a few days or more before I can either post or get it to you as I am in catch up mode still since getting home. Hope all is well with you and your dad. I will be in touch.

I agree with David 100%. Days like that Poker Run, last Sunday, can make all the time and money invested in keeping a performance boat running, worthwhile. I hope I get to enjoy many more days like that one.

Regards,
Julian

Default Back in the Islands

Well I am now back in the BVI for the next week. Flew in from Toronto today and there were David and Chrissann waiting with their boat to take me to Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor to pick up Team PREDATOR. We had hopes of going out to St Marten for the weekend but is unlikely with the brisk winds. As David says, we have only scratched the surface here in BVI and will be quite content to stay here in the Islands, do some diving and explore. Some new friends we made here during the poker run hope to come out from St Thomas and join us for a few days. It will be great for us to get together again. I have arranged to have Team PREDATOR shipped back to FL from St Thomas, USVI after I finish up mid next week. Time will not allow me to run back on her bottom as summer has arrived up north and I need to get on with the program up there. I will post from time to time and share some things that may be of interest over the next several days.

I will post some pics of an awesome sunset tonight as we rode up to Saba Rock Resort. While my pics do not come close to Jay's, I hope I can present a few good shots.

Bob

Makes me feel kinda warm and fuzzy that I know exactly where you were when you took that photo.

Have a great time and watch out for the painkillers.

I could have used this week to run the boat back but thought since I am here and there is so much to see and do the time would be better spent in the Islands and then ship it. Some of my new St Thomas friends helped with the arrangements so will get to spend a say or two over there as well before flying home.
Look me up when you come to Marco next winter. If I'm not there ....... I could be here !!
