Boat Maintenance in ParadiseFebruary/2012
Just so you don't think Cruising is all Cocktails on the beach, let me remind you that cuising is boat maintenance in exotic places! In the last few months we had to purchase 4 new house batteries$$. We had the water pump for the Perkins rebuilt and Steve picked up a backup as well$$. Just this month we needed both alternators rebuilt$$. Now the dingy leaks and we are working through the details of the warranty to get a new one shipped into St Thomas and now just yesterday the outboard for it decided it wants a new propeller$.
Swimming with Manta RaysFrancis Bay, St John
Today Manta Rays were swimming around the boats in Francis Bay. As soon as we heard we grabbed our snorkels and camera and jumped in the water! They swam around at least 1/2 hour, going in circles with their huge mouths open. Several times I could almost reach out and touch them! I had heard they were in this bay before and everyone knew I had been Manta hunting for weeks. Thank you Chimayo for the heads up or we may have missed them.
