Hi Kreed,

When u land on the rock, just hit me up or before if u wish..i have a Velocity 260, so if all goes well i would b more than happy to take u around..having some engine work done so hopefully it shoud b ready...but if not, i'm pretty sure i can find something to take you out in..The boat racing season starts in April and they race everyother sunday..so hopefully u can catch that as well..but Bermuda is mostly an Out Board Boating community with a handfull of stern drives..But definately a Beautiful place to visit..

Heres my ride

thats a Challenger that was in that that pic..can only b seen by the water..that boat is located near Ross Perot 40ft fountain..i believe Perot had about 25 boats down here..lol and he actually blew up a few reefs to make a channel bigger so he could get his boat to his dock..n this is after the Govt. told him no..

But i will advise u that this place is pretty pricey..$8.50 - $9 a gallon of gas.. 35% import duty on boats that was once 55% a few yrs ago..lol but i guess its unique in it's own way with no exports what so ever, but rated one of the wealthiest countries in the world..

I've only been twice and stayed at the Fairmont Southampton both times. I did a couple of days of 4 hour jet skiing and a couple of all day fishing trips.
For the sightseeing I liked going to all the old forts and churches.
Other than the jet skis, fishing, and sightseeing I drank a whole bunch of Dark and Stormy's LOL!!!!
Oh, and I did rent a scooter once because there's no real motorcycles available for rent. It was so so.
I hope you enjoy yourself and have a great time.

See ya,
Kelly

I wish I'd of known about OSO before my trips, all your fuel would have been on my nickle for sure.
I'm laughing about the speed limit, nobody at the jet ski rental place behind the resort told me anything about it. But getting any speed in that bay was tough. I think they called it Little Bay but it was pretty big and the water seemed really big on the skis. Going under the worlds smallest drawbridge was cool too, and so was the shipwreck that the guy at the marina told us about.
Congrats on such an awesome place to live and make a living.
Next time we go I'm definitely going to look you up.

See ya,
Kelly

Swizzle Inn is a good time.Got my name on the wall there,two pitchers of the rum punch and a straw got me my 5 minutes of fame and 5 hours of misery. If you have the time charter an independent fishing boat. We fished for two days.Marlin,Wahoo and a couple other fish. Absolute blast. Take the kids to Cable beach for a day. Pink sand and beautiful water.Grab a snorkel a mask,and a cheap underwater camera.The reefs and fish are incredible. Jeff

Make sure to give Quincy a call when you get there, he is without a doubt one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. I'm gonna make it a point to get there this year to visit him and my old Velocity, he has invited me many times but work and life seem to have prevented it.
Q stay in touch!!!!!!!
