Cheap AND Lazy

24 January 2009 | Chub Cay Marina
January 24

Commercial SSB (single side band (or HF, high frequency) radio) email service utilized on previous trips is available, but am currently abusing HAM email network due ingrained frugality and efficiency (see Title). It's free, Airmail software tunes the proper frequency and there are more available stations. But that's not all friends and neighbors! Just discovered that (this is the best part) it automatically turns the SSB on and off. Is that cool or what!? Best service has been through Montreal.
Hope you Francophobes (Rod & Eveline may skip this part) are properly chastised.

Explorer Chart indicates $1.35/foot Chub Cay dockage, $25 (deductible from overnight cost) just to stop for Customs. Figured $26.30 net to stay, right? New rate is $2.80/foot, 40' minimum. Holy Mother Goose! There goes bar money... nahhhh! Maybe I'll cut back on food. Speaking of which, restaurant has Banana fried cheese cake with vanilla bean ice cream if one wishes to commit coronary suicide to avoid outrageous bill. Ninety six slip marina (beautiful floating piers) nearly empty. Perhaps
jacking fees even higher will attract more business. Pretty sure this concept was part of the MBA.

Shortish hop to West Bay, New Providence (Nassau's island) tomorrow.
