Re: Island hopping between BVI and USVI?

Take Five,
Well, we did not go to St John. During our boat briefing we were told the holding tank had been bypassed and that we only had over board flushing of the head. Since that would be illegal to operate in US waters we completely revised or sail plan. While I was a little put off by this fact, I have to say Conch was just fine, very laid back and otherwise accommodating. I guess you get what you pay for and we were taking some equipment risks with a twelve year old boat. The sailing was fabulous, I just can't believe the difference deep water makes in 20 kts, versus our shallow bay. I must go again, and will consider Conch on my next charter, but on a newer boat.
