21 March 2017 | Charlotte Amalie, US Virgin Islands
Bill/Partly cloudy
We're back in Charlotte Amalie after a non eventful trip west along the south coast of St. Thomas. Took off early, about 0830 to avoid as traffic and adverse swells that frequent the area. As the south side is exposed to the open ocean, it can get very rollie along the coast. Pulled in by 1000 and dropped anchor which set promptly in the sandy bottom. With snubbers attached, we made plans for the day. So far, only one cruise ship(Norwegion Escape) was in town with its 4300 bodies. Safari tour busses were all over the place. Carnival Glory came in about an hour later adding another 2300 to the mix. It was going to be a busy day in town for all the stores.

We launched Puff and headed for town taking a big bag of trash with us. Normally, when we buy things at the store, we get rid of as much of the packaging as we can. Cereal boxes are one of the first to go. Still, we do make trash and it has to be gotten rid of. The Yacht Haven Grande charges just $1.00 per bag and we've used that service many times since we've been here. As we got in to shore about 1130, we hiked over to the local Wendys for lunch and then I took off for the Post Office while Tracy hit the Pueblo Super Market. I had parts coming in for our Yamaha generator and they needed picking up. For the first time, someone actually asked to see identification when I showed them the tracking number. Never happened before. Had the package a few minutes later and took off for Kmart. Picked up some snack foods(cheaper there) and then on to meet up with Tracy at Pueblo. Bought another $190 worth of food and headed back to Puff with all arms loaded with bags and carts. Into Puff it all went and back to Zephyr where we unloaded piecemeal as some of the bags were quite heavy to lift from the dinghy. Now came the challenge of finding places to put it all. Our cabinet aren't full and they sure aren't empty but we found places for all of it. Behind settees and under the floor boards. It all got stowed. Time to sit back and stare at the two cruise ships that loomed over us. We were a bit closer than we normally anchor but they made for good swell stoppers so that's just fine. By the time they normally leave, the swell is just about gone and we should have a quiet night. It's now 2230 and all is well.

Tomorrow, we are off for the propane filling station, about 3 miles down the coast. Tracy already knew where it was but I stuck the info into our navigation software on the IPad and it showed me right where it to go. We want to do it early as again, the later you go, the more wind and swells will make the trip harder and far wetter. Once we get that done, we will probably head back to shore and head up the hill to the laundromat to get our clothes washed. We are both running out and it's time. It's about a mile up the road but we can load all the clothes onto our cart and hopefully make it a bit easier. We will see tomorrow.

We expect to be her a few days before heading back out. Biggest job we have is to take the lids off our diesel tanks and clean and filter all the fuel that in them. It's been years since it was done and my primary filter continues to show that there is sediment in the bottoms of the tanks that needs to be gotten rid of. While in South Africa, I made a filtering system that might do the job. I bought a Racor filtration system and added on a 12 volt diesel pump and a bunch of hoses and filters and we should be able to get the job done. Pump out the fuel, filter it while running the end of the hose along the bottom of our tanks till it comes out nice and clean, changing the filters from time to time as needed. Once we get that done, we'll take Zephyr to the Crown Bay marina where we can get her tanks filled once again. Not going to be a cheap stop as we carry about 210 gallons and the tanks are about 15% full so at say 185 gallons at $3.15 per gallons, I need to make sure I have a wallet with me and a very good credit card. Fuel at the Yacht Haven Grande, runs $3.45 so the small trip we have to make at .30 cents cheaper is worth it. I'll let you know.

Back to Christmas Cove

20 March 2017 | Christmas Cove. St. Thomas, USVI
Bill/ rain in the forecast
We stopped along the way to Charlotte Amalie at Christmas Cove just off the east end of St. Thomas. We've been here several times before and we were in no hurry to get back to CA. Mother Nature got it wrong this morning. We upped the anchor just about 0800 and took off, all with no rain. By the time we were exiting the bay, it was sprinkling and continued to do so for the next hour or so. I wasn't standing on deck this time getting soaked as has happened so many times.
As we were heading east, the winds were in our face again but leaving this early, there wasn't a great deal of speed to them. We did have some current but winds were less than 5 knots. We worked our way down the north shore looking at all the different resorts and hotels. I just can't believe that there are that many tourists to fill all the rooms. We rounded the north shore and made our way through the cut and pulled into Christmas and grabbed what looked to be the last mooring ball(at least of what we could see). I ran two lines through the fitting and we were set. Now that we have finished lunch(chicken curry again!!)we'll be going snorkeling again to see what it's like at the small island in the center of the bay. We've heard good and bad. Now we will see. About 34 boats in here at this time and we expect more as the afternoon goes by. It's a busy place as it's the first stopping point once you leave Charlotte Amalie.
It's now approaching 1600 and the anchorage is continuing to fill up. A 40foot plus catamaran came in beside us and dropped his anchor about 15 feet from the starboard side of our boat. MUCH to close for any kind of comfort especially since we are on a mooring buoy and he would be on his anchor. He will swing in the water as the wind changed and we would stay still being on a buoy. As he swung, there was a good chance he would hit us. I tactfully asked him to move. It took some talking and the glaring looks from the 8 men on board. They finally pulled up the anchor and (Im sure grumbling) moved away from us and dropped far away from us. Glad to be rid of them.
It was a very sunny day today as a payback for having it so cloudy and rainy yesterday. After another wonderful lunch of Thai Yellow Curry Chicken on rice, we went for a snorkel trip around the small island in the center of the bay. We'd heard parts of it were pretty good and it proved to be true. It was come of the clearest water we've been in since we got here. Nice collection of different types of young coral and smaller fish. With lots of current going through from time to time, it brings in nutrients to help them grow. I saw a nice looking lobster on my trip, trying to hide in a crevasse in the rocky shore line. He retreated into his hiding place once he saw me reach of him(smart lobster). The water seemed a bit warmer but it was also shallower than precious snorkel runs we've been on around all the islands.
PI, the pizza boat was doing a good business throughout the afternoon with boats coming and going all the time making waves in the anchorage. At $28 for a pizza, we passed this time.
Tomorrow, we are off for Charlotte Amalie again to start on jobs and re provisioning for another stay out in the islands. We are running out of clean clothes as well as food.
One task I have to do is check our house batteries. They have started no keeping as big a charge as they should. After running the generator or using the engines alternators to charge the batteries, once we turn the chargers off, the voltage drops to about 12.4 instead of staying up in the 12.6 or higher range. I think I may have a few bad cells in the batteries so I'll be checking them and buying a new one or two if needed. At close to $200 per battery, I hope I don't find much wrong.18

Heading back to Charlotte Amalie

20 March 2017 | Magens Bay, St. Thomas, USVI
Bill/ Cloudy and overcast
It's now Sunday and we moved again. Take a look at our last two posts as I had no internet and they just got posted. Don't want you to miss them.

We finally have internet so I can get everything updated. We dropped the mooring lines just after 0800 and took off west for Magens Bay, about 14 miles west of where we were and on the north side of St. Thomas. As I forecast to Tracy last night, the winds would drop(had been in the mid teens for weeks)as soon as the Sun came up making us have to motor, Plus, I forecast rain as well. I just know Mother Nature would have fun with us and sure as shooting, it did exactly as I forecast. Darn near no winds and it sprinkled as we left Waterlemon and also as we arrived at Magens Bay. I did all this forecasting without the aid of a computer--just my knowledge of what Mother Nature would have for us. So we ended up motoring all the way across(gee what a surprise). We did roll out the genoa at the bow to capture what winds we might get but what ever there was died off about 5 miles later. We're no anchored deep in the bay protected from most of the swells that pass north of us along the coast. Only three boats in here at this time but it's still early and this anchorage is a bit off the beaten path of the Virgin Islands. Most come in and then visit St. John or head for BVI.

It's now Monday morning and we are getting ready to take off again. This time, on our way back to Charlotte Amalie. We got to Magens Bay and it started to sprinkle and that's all it did all day. A bit of Sun, more rain, a bit of Sun and more rain. While it may have one of the ten best beaches in the world(so the tourist literature says) we are not really beach people. No place to really snorkel so we're out of here. We have things to do back in CA and a box full of parts to pick up. By now, we are starting to run out of clean clothes so we need to get that done also. It's back to the big city and back to work.

Hiking to the ruins, etc.

19 March 2017 | Magens Bay, St. Thomas, USVI
Bill/sprinkles
Since we had no internet at Waterlemon Cay, I just posted two posts so look just before this one.

We took off about mid morning to go on a hike to the Anaberg ruins that are in this bay. A collection of old buildings made in the 1700 for making Rum as well as sugar all operated by slaves. Long since abandoned, they've been rebuilt by the National Parks so tourists will come and visit just like we did. If you come in by car, there is a fee. If you come in by boat, there isn't. We paid for a parks pass for seniors a while ago so we get our moorings at half price($13) while we stay. It was an easy hike, about a mile and then up a small hill to see were all the work was done. We'd tried to take Puff closer but the seas and swells made it very rough as we neared the beach to the west of the ruins, the swells made it just hard to get to shore safely. Instead, we reversed course and headed back east and beached Puff and walked the mile or so along the shoreline. We needed the exercise anyway.
Upon our return, we had a nice lunch of hamburger patties(mine on a tortilla and Tracy's on a bun). Add in some cheetos and Pepsi and I was good to go. During the after noon, I played with a photo program I just installed on the MacBook our son brought down to us(last one got soaked by rain). Now it's time to admit that I did it old school. I loaded and installed the program from a DVD, not off the internet. Really old school. I also loaded Microsoft Office off a DVD while I was at it. I had both programs on the old computer and since I still had the DVD's there was no reason not to install them on the new computer. No internet, no download, no nothing except a good old fashioned round chunk of plastic to stick in the machine. Our computers are so old that they still have a DVD drive built in!!! Something to be said for old school. No "Cloud" either. Sometimes It's good to do things the old fashioned way.
I played around with it for a while and then we had another round of Mexican Dominos after watching boats come into the mooring field and drop their anchor when they found out there were no mooring balls left(that's a BIG NO NO!!! As the afternoon passed, some of the boats on mooring dropped their lines and took off but the two boats that had their anchors down just stayed that way and since there is no ranger or "custodian" in this bay, there was no one to tell them it wasn't allowed. As it is, we saw very few of the boats here dinghy to the payment float and pay their fees. Maybe half though they always have the option of paying when they get their pass for as long as 30 days. That's the limit you can stay in any one year in the parks. BUT---if you don't pay and they have no record that you actually stayed the night, well, you can stay as long as you want(as long as you don't get caught I guess). We work on the following guidelines--you stay, you pay. Simple as that.
That's about it for now. Tomorrow we are off again, this time back to the north shore of St. Thomas where maybe we will have internet. We had just a few brief shots of internet today, long enough to get emails and we found that our package has arrived. Parts for the generator. Still, we have 14 days to pick them up so we don't have to rush back. We're considering going back to the British Virgins Islands and staying there some more. The problem with that is that after you spend 30 days, you have to "import" your boat($200). It a great scam to get more money out of cruisers. It's also a great place to sail. Guess we will see.

Heading for Waterlemon Cay

19 March 2017 | Magens Bay, St. Thomas, USVI
Bill/sprinkles
It looks like we have no internet nor phone service now that we are at Waterlemon Cay so posting this will have to wait for a while. Look for more posts once we have internet.

Now it's Thursday and we tackled what probably every house has--the "JUNK DRAWER"!!! We actually have three but only two are real problems. Jammed with all kinds of stuff, from batteries to computer cords to what ever seems go in there. They were a mess and desperately needed cleaning out. Tracy took the top one(the worst) and I got the next one down. Her's was all kinds of stuff, mine was far more computer cords, and odd stuff. It took is a while and some discussion from time to time as to what something might be(stuff I stuck in there)or wether it was really needed or could get pitched. In the end, we have two much cleaner and far better organized drawers with lots more space to put other things in them.
Once we finished, I tackled the USB thumb drives. We(along with lots of other people) have lots of them. I still have my first--a 256 meg drive. Expensive at the time and now an antique, it still works just fine, but just doesn't hold much data. I went through several, deleting or moving data to other computers.
One other thing we did was charge up an old IPod(the Classic) and we found it's screen to be quite fuzzy and hard to read. It's been with us for a while and what we use when on passage as "entertainment" in the cockpit at night. We each have one(both Classics as they hold more). It may be time for a new one someday. Problem with the new ones is that they just don't hold as much as the "Classic" does. (I checked it this morning and it now seems fine. I also charged up an old Sony video camera we've had since we bought Zephyr. It rarely gets used so it will be nice to have it charged up for more movies.

This afternoon, we explored into the bilge. As we were coming over, I manually pumped out the bilge of the boat. It routinely takes 23 pumps of the handle to get all the water(or at least most of it) out of the bilge and pumped overboard. This time, it was well into the 40 pump range. Not good as it appears that the "automatic" switch that turns on the pump has stopped working. Normally, when the water gets to a certain level, the switch turns on and gets all the water out. It's apparently failed and will need replacement. We had one in our box of goodies but it too failed. With the switch in place in the bilge, I flipped the switch and nothing happened. I checked the wiring and it was fine so it's time for another. We'll be off for the chandlery when we get back to Charlotte Amalie in a few days.

With all the charging I've done today of computers and cameras, we will need to run the generator for another half hour or so to top up the batteries before night fall. Don't want to go to bed and wake up with dead batteries.

Tomorrow, we will be off again continuing along the north coast of St. John. Our next box isn't due till sometime next week so there is no hurry getting back to CA.

It's now Friday and we've moved again, this time a bit farther east along the coast to Watermelon Cay, a small island reputed to have good snorkeling. It's a while 2.1 mile trip so it was nice and easy. Off by just after 0900 and in a short time later attached to a mooring ball. We chose one close to the Cay and once we saw what the current was going past it, we dropped the lines and moved farther in to a far more protected ball. Some wind still gets to us for the generator but not much swell. Once attached to the ball, we broke for lunch of tacos and then launched Puff and took off to pay our National Park fees--$13 X 2=$26. Today, the reef and island, tomorrow off for some hiking up into the hills surrounding the small bay.

The afternoon snorkeling was fair. The southeast side of the small cay was just sand and broken coral while the west side was pretty decent. Lots of fans and colorful coral along with good size fish. For the first time, I lost control as I was near the rocky shore and got swept up over some rocks and elk horn coral and payed for it with a torn swimsuit and torn skin. Not bad but I knew I'd done wrong. It was going to take some washing and a nice healthy dose of anti bacterial ointment to sooth the scrapes. Add in a nice hot shower(ran the engine to get here) and we are now both sitting in the cockpit having some snacks and watching the other boats come and go in the anchorage even though it's coming up on 1600. Speaking of watching boats come in, I was down in Puff getting her ready for the outboard to come off and her pulled up for stowage in deck with some IDIOT in a 45 foot catamaran came rushing through the mooring field. Not just driving but at full throttle passing every boat in here as fast as he could. First of all, all the mooring fields are "NO Wake"zones meaning that any boat coming through must do so at SLOW speed, not as fast as they can. As they came close to our boat(the first time I saw them)I gave the recognized boater signal to slow down--That hands held flat in front of you and moved in a downward motion. Some one on the front deck called to him to slow down but he was already 90% of the way through the field. To say I was pissed would be an understatement.His blatant disregard for all the other boats in the mooring field really pissed me off. Tracy, up on deck, urged me to just forget about it and move on. She knew I'd do something stupid like yell at him across the field as the mooring ball he took was right next to us. I cooled off some but stared across at the boat thinking all the time how much I wanted to call him an "ass hole" but If I had, Tracy would have gotten really ticked at me. As it was, she kept telling me to stop staring. Once we had Puff on deck and stowed, I looked across and saw the idiots starting up their barbecue grill. Strangly, about 10 minutes later, they dropped the lines to the buoy and took off for the far side(outside)of the filed and grabbed another buoy and tied up there, far away from us(smart guy). As expected, they never launched their dinghy and went to the National Park float to pay for their stay for the night(gee, what a surprise). It's people like him, being so inconsiderate of those around him that really tick me off. In the end, with him being now as far from us as possible, I cooled down. The only reason we can figure for him to move(other than my penetrating stare) was that in our end of the bay, there is no internet and where he was did as we found when we entered the bay ourselves. Glad he's gone!!

Do we really need a fourth anchor?

16 March 2017 | Maho Bay, St. John, USVI
Bill/Partly cloudy
We've now settled into Maho Bay on St. John in the US Virgin Islands. Been here before and it's nice to be back. While the winds still come through the bay over the surrounding hills, the water is relatively calm. Some swells do, from time to time, come in and make us rock but it's a lot better than in Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas.
We spent a good bit of yesterday afternoon cleaning up and putting things away. Today(Wednesday the 15th)we did some snorkeling on the shore line just behind us. Our son had had good luck finding lots of wild life to see and shells to bring home. He found a conch that was in the process of being eaten by an octopus. He came back to the boat, got a set of tongs and returned in time for the octopus to finish so he could scrape out what little was left and bring back a beautiful shell, freshly cleaned out and all it needed was a flush with fresh water and it was ready for transport back to Oakland when he left. I came across a huge snail in a big shell that was tucked into a crevasse. I tried picking it up and was met but a good bit of resistance. Once it finally came loose, inside was a very ticked off resident showing me all his big circular suction cup(five rings of suckers shaped like a bulls eye). I took a look and promptly put it back where I found it. We don't harvest shells if they are occupied. We both returned to Zephyr relatively chilled as the water here is anything but warm. That's one problem with being in the water around the world, you know what you like and get used to it. Once the chill is past, as long as you stay moving, it's not THAT bad.
We warmed up and each took showers and got all the saltwater off ourselves as well as out swim suits and had a nice salad for lunch. Tracy makes the best salad and this is being said by a person that never and I mean never ate salads while growing up. My parents tried but I just couldn't get past even the sound of lettuce being torn apart to make the salad. Stupid? Sure it is but hey, that's me.
By the time we were done with lunch and a bit of watching other boats come into the mooring field, we started in on another of our tasks. We'd ordered in parts for our Sailrite sewing machine(also known as Tracy's nemesis). We've had problems with it just about since day one and a few weeks ago, Tracy ordered just about every part she could think of that had in the past caused her grief. They showed up in one of the three boxes we got on Monday and now was the time to install all the parts that came in and there were a bunch. We even emailed Sailrite for a video on how to install one of the parts(moves the needle from left to right and right to left). It had broken a while ago and now it was time to watch the video and get it installed along with everything else.We've been at it since about 1400 and it's now after 1800 and we are still at it. The big part, after watching the video was easy. The rest just took a bunch of time and now that they are installed, it's time to do a bunch of adjusting to make sure it will actually(and finally) work. So far, we've only broken one needle and Tracy has her nose buried in the owners manual. We keep it handy and we both know where that manual is at all times. No clue how long it's going to take but I don't think she will be going to bed before it's either fixed of is a new anchor for out boat.
It's now 1830 and Tracy has given up. She is at her wits end and we will now be seeing if we can find a qualified person on the island that can fix it. It may be the timing, we just don't know but she's had enough. Nuff said for now. She's now getting onto Facebook to see if anyone has any recommendations for a tech. Sure hope so as we already have three anchors on board and I don't want a fourth. She's now drinking a VERY strong Margarita to calm down and relax.
Over 40 boats in the mooring field tonight. Nice breeze but no gale for winds for a change.
