Caribbean Commissioning and Outfitting

Where in the Caribbean are the best commissioning and outfitting spots? I am currently in Chaguaramas and headed North. Should I do everything here or wait until Antigua or St. Maarten?

Since you’re already in Trinidad, why not check out price & availability of the supplies & services you require.

Budget Marine is everywhere, and plently of people make destination to right where you are for refits. I found St. Maarten an inexpensive place also....duty free....i2f

Thumbs up Grenada

I was in Grenada 5 years ago and found the people very helpful and the prices not bad.

If you are a "Vessel in Transit" you can register your vessel with the chandleries and purchase Duty Free.

If you need a place to stay, try the Lazy Lagoon Cottages, and a reliable driver call Kens Taxi.

As I sit, a swirling sea of passion gives it's poems in waves underneath me.
The whispers of the sun in my eyes, a silence within.
Rhythm of the surf, drums of the sea. Thoughts tumble and toss about the deep blue abyss inside me, where the love of you dwells.
I'm fighting currents to get back to you, listening to the flow of your liquid language as you beckon me, "Come Play"
