SSchey: Well their you have it. The plans are still in the jello vat, but it is beginning to setup. I will be taking several recon. trips over the next couple of years to check out some possable ports of call. The
current targets are Belize, Costa Rica, and a small island of Puerto Rico which shall remain nameless.

Don't ignore the USVI! St. John is a stunning place to harbor your boat. We did a private charter for a week in the BVIs/St. John and were very impressed at how quickly one got from island to island. Virgin Gorda in the BVIs is lots of fun, as is Norman Island's wacky bar on the boat. St. John is still our favorite. Unfortunately, St. Croix, where it is actually possible to make a living, is a 6 hour sail from the other islands. One of it's few negatives.

BTW, bareboat charters are pretty cheap if you want to explore on your own.

Good luck,
