I had no problems at all with SevenStar, but the Antwerp to Bonaire route
is a regular scheduled monthly route
. It does not just service Bonaire, which is a very small place, but also goes onto Curacao
, and then onto South and Central America
, as required. Very good communications
from the lady I was dealing with in the Netherlands
. Even with a series of delays caused by the various Covid-19 lock downs in Europe
. I was amazed at how smoothly it all went in the end without me at either location. Perhaps I was just lucky?? But there are indeed options, just keep looking and asking.
There is no need to de-rig, as this type of shipping allows the masts to stay in place. You have the crane on/off type of vessels, as I did, and then the float on/off type.
