I chartered with bimini yacht charters out of st Vincent back in the late 80's
The charter base was located in blue lagoon and was operated by Mary.

The boat we chartered was the worst charter boat I ever experienced. I have chartered approximately 10 boat since then.

After my charter, I wrote to Bimini yacht charters and complained about the base operator Mary, the lies we received re maintenance issues, the refilled bottled water that turned brown after a few days, food supplied that was already past the expiry date, etc.

At the time, I was really annoyed that Mary and crew lied to us, cheated us and refused to settle up with us when confronted with our many problems.

We vowed never to do business with her again and have avoided her for the past 20 plus years.

We have chartered with horizon yacht chartered the past 4 times and have had a consistent great experience.

My last thought: Buyer beware, especially when dealing with Mary!

Man do you ever hold a grudge.....a problem twenty trucking years ago and you register on SailNet for the sole purpose of bitching about BYC and giving Horizon a plug !!!

Anyone got a grain of salt I could borrow ?

Now that Warren brought it up, I gotta tell ya TDW, I been wanting to pick a bone with you. Back in 1989, we met this Australian couple. They were on a tour of America and we all shared a campsite. They left their trash sitting there and I had to pick it up. Luckily I bought a Catalina Yacht six years later to help me get over my troubles. SO I vowed never to camp with an Australian again but have bought 4 Catalina yachts (Yachts and boats for sale - Catalina Yachts) and have had a consistent great experience.

So beware of camping with others - especially if they are Australian.

What have you to say about that, Fuzzie?

I'd be thinking you should remove the commercial links from your post or at least take out an advert ya bum.

Its a shame you have sworn off the camping life with Australians cos its Gay Mardi Week in Sydney.....if you wanted to resume camping it up with Orstrayans then this is the week to do it ......
