Boats and books for sale
What’s new in St. Thomas? Rebecca and I spent a large chunk of the day on board yesterday working on the computer. Rebecca’s task was to itemize the expenses from the last charter and I spent time editing photos and updating our charter website(s).
After being cooped up all day Rebecca and I were getting a bit stir crazy so we took the kayaks out for a brief spin around the harbor. Of course, just as we did so the wind picked up so we got a bit of a workout paddling upwind. We’ve had some pretty crazy squalls here lately resulting in some flooding on land and some dragging drama in the harbor. Fortunately, when the largest of these squalls was taking place we were tucked away in our own private bay with no one else around us. We were definitely thankful for that. One of our friends ended up dragging and getting his anchor chain wrapped around another boat’s chain and it cost him a $500.00 diver fee to get that sorted out. Not cool. One reason that we plan to leave One Love at a marina while we’re in Barbados is so that we don’t have to worry about things like that.
In other news I just found out that our friend John has his 38′ catamaran Stingo for sale. We’ve spent a bit of time on Stingo and in my opinion, a 38′ cat is perfect for a couple to cruise on. We all know that there are a lot of you out there looking to do that, right? In fact, just last night as we were leaving a restaurant with our friends, we were stopped by a young couple at the bar who shared that they too read this blog and are planning to begin boat shopping so that they can go cruising. Awesome! If they see this post perhaps they’ll chime in and say hello.
