captainjay is on a distinguished road
Couple of things to add, Cruz Bay is a problem for several reasons. Traffic, shallow water and no room. The channel back to customs is narrow, there are several shallow spots including a bad one by the fuel dock that you can easily hit in a sail boat. The customs dock is crowded and busy and the VI Port Authority charges to tie up there. The main harbor is loaded to the hilt with permanent moorings, live aboard and commercial boats so no room there. As far as customs goes it is much easier to take a mooring at Caneel Bay/Lind Point and dinghy in. For fuel and water Red Hook, Jost or Sopher's would be my first choices. Great Harbour has over thirty moorings now, some are owned by Foxy's some by the fuel dock. The fuel/water dock is on the left side right by the ferry dock, deep water right up to it.
