Can't get anything through on the internet!

But I wanted to say I could not fix the rigging myself as it was 3 days before Christmas and I had plans to get to Foxeys on Jost Van Dyke fore New Years, then I have a friend arriving on the 11th of January in the BVI's
So it would have screwed up Christmas, New Year and my mates vacation!

So theres times yas just gotta pay out!




Had a sensational night at Foxeys on NYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark, there's no need to apologize for having the wherewithal to hire a pro to work on your boat. You've worked hard for what you have, and had the sea sense to bring her in with the stick pointing up. I think a professional rigger is worth his weight in gold, and this is coming from someone who's in the midst of a total refit, doing all his own work. The only two pros I have hired are the rigger and North Sails. Enjoy your time in paradise my friend! C

Boatman, we know you are alllllllright! I like that new pic of you liming in a hammock. It is OK to use the word "liming" around a Brit, isn't it? :-)

This thread is worthless without pictures! Bummer about your internet connection, or lack of, Mark.

I tried to get Tom to go but he thought it would be to crowded. I've heard since then that not as many people were there.

Let me know if you want to get together we are on St Thomas.

Yes, I do! That would be great. I don't know when I will be there yet. Not at least for 4 weeks.

Now that you've soloed the Atlantic, you wanna do something dangerous, eh?

Congrats, Mark - you've accomplished something that most of us dream and talk about, but never attempt.
