Is the Mercury outboard display still at Saba?

There is nowhere I would rather be that running between islands in the BVI's......
No time for ring games. LOL

The antique o/b motors are still on display at Saba. Even one in my room ! LOL There is quite a collection. Check out the pipes on that one motor. We even have a Christmas tree here.

Very Nice Bob... I was down there last January and can't wait to get back to the Islands!!! The bar kind of reminds me of Sidney's Peace & Love, lobster lunch and the honor system behind the bar!!!!

Love it here Pat and am bringing Team PREDATOR back in mid Feb for the rest of the winter. We will go down island and check out many more islands and finish up by doing the poker run again in May.

Default A few tidbits

Anegada is largely surrounded by one of the largest barrier reefs in the Caribbean. There are many shipwrecks in the area dating back to the first explorers.
The island took a direct hit from hurricane Earl a few months ago and there was quite a bit of damage. They have done a lot of repairs and are recovering. In the pic of David's Tiger you will notice new decking etc.
Yesterday when driving around the island in a rented pick up truck we came across a flock of flamingoes on one of the interior ponds but were far enough away that I would have needed Jay's telephoto lens to capture them.

I had a bit of a hole in my fun schedule, so I flew back down on the 15th and will leave tomorrow afternoon the 20th to go back north. Thank you for your hospitality this last several days, David and Chrissann. For a few days now we have been running around familiar places in the BVI in his Tiger and today the seas settled down enough for us to make the trip out to Anegada. That was pretty special. Much of the BVI is volcanic and most have seen Jay and my pictures of the picturesque mountains rising out of the sea. Anegada is different and is more like what you would see in the Bahamas. The island is low lying and made up of coral and sand. David, Chrissann and I enjoyed exploring the island and an unbelievable lunch of fresh lobster on the beach today. Enjoy the pics taken with my Lumix point and shoot since I wanted to travel light and left my Canon at home.
Bob,

Love those water and beach shots, the colors a just great. Also nice to see some locals in your shots.

"left my Canon at home" Tell me more, I just upgraded from my old Nikon to Canon

I bartended for a family friend on Anegada. Lowell. He owned the only hotel on the island. He has since passed and I believe his wife was opperating the hotel. He cooked lobster he free dived for over a wood that was only available on the island. Awesome.

Is Team PREDATOR the 50 NT or the Donzi 38 ZR as well? I know it is the NT for sure, not sure though if you named the Donzi that too (since they are painted identical). You mentioned last year you might send the Donzi down for the winter....
