Latest updates on adventures in our new boat ownership. I was able to arrange for assistance in getting the boat towed from Goodman’s Bay (where it’s been anchored for over a year) to it’s new location at Browns Marina. What should have taken an hour ended up taking 3 1/2 due to an disconnected rudder which made towing almost impossible. So after some quick thinking, Captain…

When necessity calls…bring out the plastic buckets!


What the *&%#$ Was I thinking?! I bought a sailboat!

I sit here on the patio mid-day smoking one of my cigars overlooking the crystal blue Bahamian waters. I’m watching vacationers take their children on frightening jet ski rides, Sandals Resort shuttling patrons to their private island, cruise ships exiting the harbour and vacationers looking for new ways to kill themselves by being launched into the air via parasailing vessels etc. Suddenly I’m…
