Based on the smile on his face and where his hands are place I think he was about to surprise the girls with a present, because he is glad to see them

Re: MarkJ Missing ?

I go with the impostor theory. That did not sound like MarkJ. My view is that he has found the perfect women,fallen in love and is holed up with them. There are three of them.

Maybe the pirates took him, realized no one was willing to pay a ransom, and are now trying to drum up sympathy for him before giving CF an ultimatum...

Re: MarkJ Missing ?

Mark is well, and enjoying the facilities at Medregal Village in the Gulf of Cariaco (Venezuela).
He plans to haul out there next week, to paint the bottom.

He says:

“... The area is far from the crime centers, in fact to far from bloody anywhere!
Its an hour to get to the closest town to which we drive once per week and another hour to the larger town that actually has useful shops.
I knew this would be so and had bought everything I need for the haul out in Grenada.
Its also giving me a great break to save some money and have a large
swimming pool, bar and $7 per night French Restaurant every night! It really is the budget cruisers dream for the hurricanes season. However its far too far from civilization. Meeting local girls is just not possible!!
Next (northern) summer I am heading up the US coast to New York and then to come slowly down the Intercoastal waterway ...”


See his Blog ➥ Our Life At Sea - Sailing Yacht 'Sea Life'

More about Medrigal Village Hotel
M
Noonsite: Gulf of Cariaco
Golfo de Cariaco

Jean Marc, the Belgian owner of the Medrigal Village hotel and his beautiful Venezuelan wife, Yoleida, allow the crews of visiting yachts to use all the hotel's facilities, including a swimming pool and HOT showers for free. The bar is available at all times on a trust basis, you just kept your own tab going and pay up when you leave.
