The week went fast. Spent a day searching for a new VHF antenna and some cable. Not to be found on this island. Ended up hiring an agent in Florida to gather the items and send them here. Too bad he didn't put my cruising permit number on the package, because it cost me 45 % duty. After two trips across the island to locate the package, I finally got my parts.l What a waste of 3 days. But the radio works.
Leaving for parts south on Saturday. Probably Shroud Cay then Staniel on the way to Georgetown.
Anchoring here is a mess. The tide trumps 23 knots of wind. Boats lying stern to the wind. Boats drifting around their chain. Spent one who night fending off boats. No one wanted to move. Was hit a few times by one boat. I went over to them in the morning and told them, "if we have to meet again at 2 in the morning, I drink Rum and diet coke". They moved. Must not have any rum on board.
Hope you all have a happy, safe and peaceful holiday.
