Re: First overnight anchor ..

I'll second Jim's comment on the scope - scope is your friend in this situation.

Re: Recent charter in BVIs

Very nice! The water down there is the 'bluest blue' there is - I'll join the jealous crowd (and start saving those nickels and dimes for our next journey south!).
