Thumbs down Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

The first lie relates to the location... "Blue Lagoon". Barefoot Yacht is outside of the protected harbor and waves roll over the reef and slam the boat around making loading and unloading dangerous. Laying away the provisions on board at the dock will test your stomach. The lies just get bigger from there which makes their website the largest amount of false advertising I've seen in one place. If something goes wrong you are on your own. We had a short in the windlass switch which caused the motor to switch on spontaneously and dump all the chain we had left (100+ feet) causing us to swing wildly in the harbor. We had a dinghy leak and no pump with the appropriate adapter for the type of valve required to inflate. The inverter was inoperable so charging cell phones, etc. was impossible. We made do... because we had to. The employees at Barefoot Yacht were incredibly rude and totally unhelpful. We were harbored in Bequia(Friendship Bay), Mustique(Brittania Bay), Mayreu(Salt Whistle Bay), and Canouan. Their answer was always "if only you were somwhere else (Admiralty Bay, Union Island, blah,blah,blah) we could get it corrected". They provided no assistance!
