Unusual, did they find out what happened? 500 hrs is about half way through break in

Thanks for sharing, although I don't get as much work done at the office as I should since I am using a bunch of your pictures in my screen saver. Did you know you can set it to turn on after 3 seconds of inactivity??

Obviously he has never seen you dock a 50 footer

Probably the same look on their faces as the land lubbers at Smugglers in Port Credit. LOL

If you're heading back past Dominica Bob, let me know. I'll send you my buddies #. He says he can tell you where all kinds of amazing places to visit are in the area. He moved there 6 yrs ago and like you, loves to go adventure boating.

This gave me a thought. If any of our OSO brethren or their friends live in places Bob will pass, perhaps they can take a land-shot of him going by. Would make an already enviable thread that much better.

I dated a travel agent for a while- she told me it was the most beautiful place she had ever seen. Bob's pix tend to confirm that.

Thanks again, Bob... really enjoying this thread.

This phase of my adventure will soon come to an end as we fly home tomorrow afternoon. The boat is secure and put away in a first class marina ( IGY - Rodney Bay ) until my return sometime in mid April. When I come back, if time and weather permit, I would like to go another 70 to 100 miles south to see the Grenadines in the area of Bequia before turning around and heading back north. I will pick up Montserrat and St Kitts on the way north and then go to BVI either via St Maarten or Saba. That will all get figured out later. Again, thanks.

Bob
