Howe is well respected, his business number is 340-775-6081. Are you on St Thomas now? Send me a PM if you wish.

Thanks,

I left him a message.

I tried to reply to your PM... but I do not have enough posts to do so. The system will not let me. The man is keeping me down!

I was in St. Thomas looking at boats last weekend but am back in GA now. We have a deal pending on a boat over at St. John and I will need a good surveyor come late March so I need to make arrangements now. Any idea if Independent Boatyard has any slips?

I was at Independent a few months ago, (tiki bar there has great rum drinks but pass on the chow), and they had some empty slips, why not just get a mooring?

It has little to do with keeping you down, and a lot to do with preventing fly-by link spamming... which has dropped almost completely since they put the 10-post minimum on the forum.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Surveyor

Captain Steven Bajor did a good job for me. Don't know if he's still around, it was a few years back.

Starboard FYI---The food at Carigas (name of bar at IBY) was very poor a few months ago but has improved recently to the point where I could recommend you try it again next time you are around.

Last time I spoke with the dockmaster about slip availablity, there were none in January but the waiting list was not too long. Empty slips don't mean they are available unless you sneak in after dark and leave before first light, in which case they are complimentary.

Getting a legal mooring is a long painful process in the USVI. There are no good protected areas where new moorings are allowed. I went through the process a couple of years ago and did get a mooring while on the waiting list for IBY. I do still maintain that mooring and use it on occasisions when it is convenient. From what I understand of T's previous threads, a slip is the only real option for what he is trying to do.

I have Will Howe set to do the survey at the end of the month. I am kicking around whether or not to have a separate rigging survey done. The standing rigging is 9 years old. I looked at it all pretty close when I was aboard and Howe did say his survey would include going up the mast. But 9 years in the tropics would seem to be pushing it, so I want the rig inspected VERY close.

Opinions? Any ideas on the best rigging surveyor in the VI ?
