Part of the BVI experience/fun is going ashore during the day, having a great meal, getting totally wasted, spending 30 minutes at the dock
trying to find your dingy, trying to remember who has the key for the dingy lock, getting in the dingy with no flashlight that you forgot, realizing you did not turn on the boat anchor light when you left, one of the inebriated
females in the dingy states "great were all drunk, its dark and were lost". No worries after 30 minutes trying to find your boat, the alcohol wears off , mostly because of adrenaline, you find your boat with no lights on and all is good.
BTW-1 when using the BBQ grill
please move the dingy with the gas tank on the other side of the boat, upwind toward the bow. My understanding is your boat insurance
does not cover dingy damage. If your dingy burns up or explodes for some reason while cooking
, it can cost you $1000s.
BTW-2 always do you own calibration of the depth
