Given the short time, and the boat and owners are American, then the above or even just anchoring it in Long Bay, St Thomas is quite viable. Currently we have maybe a half dozen boats anchored here in Long Bay while the owners flew home.
- - Flights out of St Thomas and especially San Juan are dirt cheap compared to other islands, especially "foreign country" islands. Add in the simplicity of not having to deal with Customs/Immigration when staying in your own countries territories and bringing stuff back to the boat can make life much more simple.

Tobago

This one took a mooring, and the rope broke off under watherline, and the 3 boys in the boat made on land, but the boat B 45s5 is lost.

Norsk båt forlist ved Tobago : Seilas.no

Check the mooring you take , do a dive and look at chain rope , IS IT OK; ?
This one was not.

Better yet: use your own anchor or mooring + anchor if you want something extra but at least put something in the seabed that you know for sure will hold.

ciao!

Re: Where to Leave Boat in Caribbean

If you want the boat to be safe, you could also have it hauled at Nanny Cay Boatyard in Tortola. If if is on jackstands, you don't have to worry much about it sinking. The cost for a month a storage would likely be reasonable, and you wouldn't have to hire somebody to look after it.

cheers,

The hurricane season will have just completed when he arrives in November and will not restart until the following June.

My concern is that he'll be transiting to the Caribbean during the hurricane season.
