Re: Host a Scientific Expedition!
We would be most interested in doing something like this, if only you were studying something other than spiders; I'm sorry. If you've associates who study almost anything else, please get back to us.
As for all that other "captain/charter" stuff, you've no need to worry outside of US waters. None of the Islands down here in the eastern Caribbean care anything about a foreign flagged vessel's charter legalities; they just want the extra income in fees, other than the BVIs.
Good luck and if you do get down this way and see us anchored near you, please stop by, sans spiders of course, for some of Nikki's rum punch.
