Re: Snow birding
Grenada makes me nervous as we all know its not really hurricane free. I have no knowledge of what yards are good Carriacou. Do you have any thoughts on access to that info?
Our friends use the yard in Tyrell Bay. Always a bit 'rough' but they look after the boats. Recently changed hands, and apparently the service is as good and the yard is much improved. Popular, though, and may be booked up. The boat is a Bene 36.7 and she survived a wayward hurricane unscathed there some years back - she was well braced, strapped down (with mast still up). The yard was in regular communication with them here in BC throughout the event.
Anyhow sounds like you're leaning towards bringing her back...
