Hi from the Caribbean

Hi,

I'm the owner of a Mako 22' centre console with 2 x 85hp Yamaha 2-stroke outboards.

I also now have recently been given a 2.8m RIB with a 2.5 Tohatsu 2-stroke outboard.

Just found this site as the Rib required a couple of repairs to get it to usable condition and the Tohatsu needs (which I now have) a replacement fuel cock.

So I'll start with posts requesting help.

Nice very nice. Later in the year I am off to Antigua with a group of friends and of course our wives. I do not think we can make a stop over but we will have access to an ample supply of rum Thanks anyway

BTW The return airfare Antigua-St.Kitts-Antigua with LIAT is about +/-248.00.

Better to spend it on rum in Antigua.

Make sure that you visit English Harbour.
