If you are looking for dock space there are lots of small, protected yacht harbours here with nary a boat in the. Lot of sand too if you are into that.
I sure hope you are flying first class.
I got back to Trinidad from a six day trip to RI and figured I'd just spent a thousand Euros so that United Air Lines could torture me for 18 hours and the airports could rip me off, never mind the TSA!
Flying used to be so much fun. Oh well.
