Provisioning -vs- doing it ourselves

Sailor Pete,

Congrats on your first charter! You will love it. My personal feeling is that the charter companies give you too much food at too high a price. Now, I have never needed to only provision for 2-3 people. Typically it''s six. You can go to the same Ample Hamper store that they will use and get your own provisions. You will save money twice. You won''t pay the extra for the charter company and you won''t buy as much food. Don''t worry about forgeting something or not having enough. In the VIs there are plenty of places to pick up a few things.

Just my 2 cents.
