Any pointers for reprovisioning along the way? (Other than the famous cinnamon buns you mentioned.) We're more inclined to buy a little at a time than try to provision for the whole charter up front--we always end up with a lot of waste that way.

Also, did you notice any incorrect or outdated advice from the cruising guide?

Thanks!

Cruising guide was excellent. Navigation was more detailed that the BVI guide. Pay attention to the rising tide advice. The refrigerator was very good and freezer was just okay. We filled the bottom of the freezer with ice. We also had a large igloo freezer provided by Moorings. We did all our provisioning in Marsh Harbour at the Price Right. I was not on the supermarket run, but the 2 that went said it was a very good store, but expensive.

Very important - make sure you make a mooring ball reservation a few days in advance of getting to Hope Town. Do not enter Harbour without knowing you have a reservation.

I gather from your specific mention of Hope Town that reservations were not needed elsewhere? We're coming the last week in April, when things might be a little more busy.

We also needed a reservation at Treasue Cay. We got a slip there. Please post when you return.

I forgot to mention that there is a pretty good grocery store in Treasure Cay. We only bought sunscreen there, but I remember thinking reprovisioning here would be okay.
