Good point on the work to get it home.
We had intended to leave it in St Maarten but after a short period decided it was better off home.
Things that would not have mattered if it stayed had to be addressed for the trip. Fortunately all our issues were small but...that is not always the case as everyone here knows.
We needed new batteries $$
Life Raft $$
Filthy Fuel tank
had to be addressed
That was as complicated as it got fortunately.
The boat made the relatively short journey without incident.
