If anyone has been aboard or knows this vessel, I would really appreciate any insights.
Jon and Jules,
She's parked at HR Penn's Marina in Road Town (same marina I park my "boats under management"). Looking a bit sad and unloved and I havent seen anyone on her for months. I remember doing a delivery
up to the East Coast
2 years ago and she was doing the same route
with the then owner and a lady delivery skipper
. We found them going through a huge amount of bureacratic problems in Ponce where US Customs
wanted to extract a huge fee (reason not known) and speaking to the lady skipper
many months later I found that she bailed out on the west coast
of Puerto Rico
because of the poor condition of the boat
and the "odd" attitude of the then owner. Because this is a slightly odd place to leave from a boat, the USCG expressed a great deal of interest and I think they carried out a boarding, but I dont know any results of it.
I was somewhat surprised to see her back in Road Town!
If you are thinking of buying
- get it surveyed!! Tony
