Nothing surprises me in the islands. However, , there is probably more to preparing for a stay aboard than meets the eye. We've found linens arranged and welcome instructions on the salon table, not to mention the traditional bottle of rum. More important to them, I suspect, is they fully inventory and inspection of the boat before you arrive.

Horizon claimed to dive the hull of every boat before each charter and they keep a video, so you can't claim any damage already existed. Makes one wonder if they do the same in the cabin, etc. They probably should.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
