St Martin they can anchor in Marigot Bay or the Lagoon... there'd be succour for them there French side.. lots of French boats much like theirs there already...
Would not surprise me if they are already there.. they've had long enough..
Most likely, good guess. I suppose Cuba could be a possible destination also.

No money or sympathy in Cuba.. also involves sailing in US waters and I assume they'll be thinking the easy way.. not wending their way through the Straits etc..
No.. reckon the French Carib's is the place to look... then come April-June a run to the Azores if they've a mind which I doubt as they'll be able to access French benefits in the Islands..

This info was provided early on ... either in the initial posts, or in the linked article.

Re: ICW "Pirates". Have you Seen?

Fact is we have no idea where they are or who they'll be scamming next. If people will be dishonest over small things then you certainly know they will when the payoff is greater. Now when it was revealed quite early that they'd lied about how they got there, their previous path, why give them a single dollar or any more help. You know you can't trust them. Now if they were starving and without food, yes, I'd feed them. But that is it. Engine starter? Sailors don't let things like that stop them. They head on to the next port and get it fixed there.

I'm happy for Oriental and other boaters there. I hope the next locale just observes them as the arrive and realizes quickly that they are scam artists and freeloaders. The other thing that is common for sailboaters traveling the world or circumnavigating is doing odd jobs along the way. While no one could hire them as employees, they could have gotten some money if they desired by washing boats or mowing lawns or whatever was needed to supplement their way.

pirate Re: ICW "Pirates". Have you Seen?

As a good excuse to have a beer or two, I am now ready to say there is no pink boat in Taylor's or Town Creek in Beaufort.

I live to serve.

Re: ICW "Pirates". Have you Seen?

Pilot....unfortunately he was banned. He is supposed to be back in Charleston for Christmas and then head down here to Jax to go to Green Cove Springs Marina for some boat work...I hope he will get reinstated.... if that is a option I don't know. Most of the thread posting were both amusing as well as helpful to many. I looked forward to each days updates....always interesting reading......let's hope for his return.....Life is good, just keep Smilin..
