Thanks Andre,
We might go and hire with The Moorings for a trip with a power Cat instead.

there are a few companies doing power boat charter . As a good tip take with you at least a hand held GPS with charts. Mike C had one and just as well as there was no GPS on the rib. We also took paper charts and even better if you can get a copy of The Cruising Guide to the Virgin Islands. We got a copy at SBS. Lots of good info
You will enjoy the visit.

I went sailing there this past June with family and friends. Had to be the best vacation I've had yet!

For roti there was a great place across the bay from the Bitter End YC.

We had roti's most days at different places but the one at Soggy Dollar for me was the best. The one at Nanny Cay was OK as well

Can't say I'm a connoisseur, it's was my first taste! good stuff. We didn't eat there, I think I just drank too much at the soggy dollar :-)

here is another clip shot as we left the Soggy Dollar bar behind. Typical BVI scenery . The clip is specially for those of you who have put their ribs to bed for the winter but wish they were still on the water

Enjoy
