Are you planning to stay aboard the boat
for the remainder of hurricane
season? Does your insurance
cover you for Grenada? Did you want a marina, a mooring
, or did you plan to stay on the hook? The answers to these questions will help determine if Grendad or Trinidad is the better spot for you.
We opted to stay in Trinidad. It is fairly expensive here, particularly for getting work
done. And they do charge extra for berthing a cat. Having said that, we are at Crews Inn, and it is lovely. We have everything we need at our fingertips (incl. grocery, bank, restaurants, and pool in addition to the usual laundry
, showers, etc.). I am not sure what is available in terms of getting work
done on your boat
in Grenada, but I can guarantee you that you can do it all here. And boat parts
are duty free here.
I can't advise you as to the dinghy/motor. I know this is very self-serving, but I currently have an outboard motor for sale
if you can wait till you get to Trini. It runs well - we just decided to take advantage of the great deals in St. Martin to replace it. It is posted on this board - check the archives
