gafferduck - forget the work permit - it is a lengthy and involved process and you need to get sponsored. But what is the issue with 30 days - if you have a boat the USVI can be reached quickly (if you have no visa then a quick ferry trip as mentioned above will work) or, even better, head to St. Martin in order to get so palatable food on the French side and inexpensive duty-free shopping on the Dutch side. At a guess I would say that the price of boating supplies is around 50% of BVI prices so the trip is worth it. The trip to St. Martin sucks, as it is against wind and waves.
There are some interesting threads here and on traveltalkonline about what people have to go through in order to get a visa. I've heard many a bar tale in the BVI from expats there detailing their trials and tribulations.
