The charter company name was Eluthera Charters in Hatchet Bay, Eluthera, Bahamas. I really don't know if they are still in operation. There is a phone number for them under production resources on a quick internet search.

Honestly, I have tried to push this event as far out of mind as I could.

The charter owner was a man named John Spencer, who was an American.

Let's just say, it's the last time I'll ever put a boat in charter service if I'm not a local owner.




Like a moth to a flame, I am drawn to the sea.

Don't think they're in business anymore. If I remember right they used to have a few Cabo Ricos.

It's horryfying to see how charter Business is handled over there..No surprise that they are in and out...
I assume this the result of very tough competition. Having heard what is happening there I would think twice before I charter or give to a charter my boat in this world.. Fortunately, the things are much better in the Med or particularly in Greece/Turkey..

Hatchet Bay (Eleuthra) and the 100 (or boats) moored there, were ravaged by Hurricane Andrew, in 1992.

Still skippering the odd charter with the company I wrote about above (by party choice) but I can say you might tie you boat up to one of these if you didn't have a marina berth . . . . nuff said??
