Well here we are, my wife Tania and myself Jean-Pierre, for months now people in the Bahamas and the Carrabean have been telling us about this famous site, but guess time was holding us back. Recently came back from Anguilla and St-Maarten, where we finished new antifouling, 6 coats interproteck and 4 seahawk antifouling, gosh we're tired, but hope it'll pay off in the years to come. Glad to be with this community for we have many questions and believe me, we will be asking and talking about our own stories, like Sandy island 360$us lunches, yes you read wright, 360$us for lunch for 4 people on a deserted island.....

Re: Brand new member

Yes, welcome to the forum! Over time I think you'll find the interproteck worth both the money and effort - the bottom was done on my boat years ago and has remained blister free. As to the restaurant - unless the price was pushed up by a really good bottle of wine (which based on the description, I somehow doubt), yikes!!!!!!!!

Cheers!

Brad
