Still trying to be courteous
Just over a year ago I wrote about purchasing a courtesy flag for the US. Like the charts we have been struggling to acquire*, we perhaps should have gone the extra mile and worked to obtain flags for the other islands for points south of here. I know why I didn’t though. It’s because they are expensive! We have been asking on the morning radio net to see if any boats here are looking to unload some. Thus far we have come up with a flag for the Dominican Republic and St. Martin. That only leaves about 20 more that we need to find, or failing that, sew them!
*Our chart situation should be sorted out. We had a friend pick up paper charts for us in Toronto and Rebecca will be picking them up when she returns to Canada later today. The chips for our chartplotter will also be picked up by another cruiser here and we should have those in our possession by the 14th as well.
