That last bit where he sailed over land for a while must have been bumpy.

Re: Winter sailing from Annapolis to St. Martin - Follow "Zanshin"

90% sure that Soper’s Hole has a customs and immigration office. Although, post hurricane West End was said to be in very poor repair, when I was down there last winter. I avoided it, as I heard there was rampant sewage odor. Road Town would be my last choice, in any condition. I’ve always cleared in at Jost Van Dyke next door to Foxy’s!

Congrats to Zan!!

A really good example why one should not put all their trust in GPS. These days the GPS is more accurate than most charts and one can be on the bricks when the chart is showing you in deep water.
And another great reason to purchase a set of our Handy Dandy Keel Wheels. They come in three sizes and take the bother out of obstacles in the water. Got an island between you and your anchorage? Well, no longer must you stay in the water and go around, missing that perfect anchoring place. Just point your bow where you want to go and our Handy Dandy Keel Wheels will take you directly to your spot, over the island, reefs and/or rocks.
Time for a haul out? No more expensive Travel Lift rides. Just drive up the beach until you can tie to a tree and scrape and paint to your heart's content. See our brochure for all the other amazing ways our Handy Dandy Keel Wheels can save you money and simplify your life.
Warning; Handy Dandy Keel Wheels may not get you over and by a cruise ship, but they will definitely get you into the party!

Re: Winter sailing from Annapolis to St. Martin - Follow "Zanshin"

The reason why Zanshin has not reported in to us since he arrived in the BVIs is that he has been arrested for drunkenness at the Sopers Hole marina bar.

Hé has asked me to "pass the hat" to get some money for Bail.

If each of you can please send me $100 I will be very happy.


Thanks.

Yes, please send Mark some donations. Then he too can purchase a set of Handy Dandy Keel Wheels for his very own boat and join the elite, who say, "Damn the island, full speed ahead!"

Re: Winter sailing from Annapolis to St. Martin - Follow "Zanshin"

He reported on the jeanneau owners site, he had two accidents on way in during some heavy winds. Was 12 hours ago waiting for a ride to a hospital for X-rays.........Hence no beer or other comments yet.
It appears that while he is there, he is not totally 100%.

With the above typed...... Wait for a really true answer from him.
