Trozden...I'm chuckling here with the memories you brought back! Sounds like we had exactly the same experience...even with VanSant!

Was the Samana pirating incident you referred to last November with a Vagabond 47?? We are close friends with them and they were boarded there after going aground. A real horror story. REALLY not a good place!! As you point out...at least Luperon was reasonably safe!!

As an aside...to anyone considering a visit to Luperon...if you go on the beautiful waterfall tour, do NOT swim in the water ...there are towns upstream and guess where they dump??
