Hurricane Dorian - Rib Support and help!

Hi All,

It's been a while since I posted! Both of our Parker ribs have been going strong, and we just sold our Parker 900 to IDEA Relief, an NGO formed to provide support to the islands devestated by Hurricane Dorian.

The outpouring of support world wide has been phenomenal for the people of the Bahamas effected! We will rebuild the effected areas and are still open for business here in Nassau and the rest of the Bahamas.

If you'd like to support the RIB which is helping out so tremendously, you can donate towards fuel and supplies here:

Alternatively Rotary is one of the best non-profits on the ground:

Many thanks for all your support!

Interesting to hear that you have sold the 900 Baltic to IDEA Relief. I do hope she serves them well. What will her role be in her new capacity.

I will for sure make a donation

I hear there was some hurricane damage to the 1000 Baltic . Was it serious and is she now up and running

Hey All - sorry, been out of touch because of everything going on.

No damage to the 1000. Huntress is currently running a much needed ferry service. Attached is a photo of India Hicks riding our ex-boat - maybe the UKers know her?

Coms visit us - your support is a great way to get an amazing vacation and support the Bahamas!
