Glad you found the boat. I based my assumption on the fact that you told Farcry it was a St John boat. Stormy Petral and her sister ship are St Thomas based and pick up in St John. Nice boat and a well run trip.
FYI, I called Al Day today (charter manager of Stormy Petrel), and he said they're not doing any group cruises during the holiday week. It's private charters only, but Stormy is a little too big and pricey for my little family of 5. Al recommended doing a private charter of a 26' Prowler Cat from See and Ski, so I've got that set up. Hopefully the seas will be calm enough to make it all the way up to Virgin Gorda in the smaller boat.
Since Al seemed like a real straight shooter, I asked him for a recommendation for a one-day sailboat charter. He said he lives on a Pearson 424, and his son does charters on it (dba Simplicity Charters, apparently while Dad is at work during the day). So I set that up as well.
My 22 year old son is certified scuba diver, and Al's son recommended Low Key Watersports for scuba trips. My son is setting that up on his dime.
Please PM me if any of you USVI locals know of any reason not to do business with these companies.
