Had a blast in the Carribean!

Hey everyone!! I just spent the weeknd with my good friend and his wife and kids on their new sailboat. He ended up getting a Hunter 356. It's obviously a 2003 model, but it is still a really nice boat. We took it out to the Carribena Islands which is about 30 minutser from his house and had a blast!! The weather was amazing and the water was crystal blue! We actually got a chance to break out the alcohol stove and cook some food on deck! We all had such a great time, I might even have to consider getting one myself for the states!

Welcome to Sailnet. Where does your friend live that the Caribbean Islands are 30 minutes from his house?

Unless you're on a really fast powerboat... I can't think of anyplace outside of the Caribbean that would be 30 minutes from the Caribbean...

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.

Me either. That's why I asked. I even Googled the Carribena Islands in case it wasn't a typo. I suppose mainland Venezuela to Margarita Island might qualify as would Honduras to Roaton etc...

I thought the 356 only came with propane....

Maybe what he really meant to say is that they "got a chance to bring out the alcohol"....now that's more believable!

I've got blisters on my fingers

Dev it would be great if you were to enlarge on your adventure. Including things like starting point, actual destination. Plus the mini adventure episodes that happened. I am sure that we would all enjoy it.

'Mañana' ? Well, down here in the Caribbean islands we don't need a word with that sense of urgency.
