After I got the last posting done, we immediately changed our plans somewhat. We did, indeed, leave Hope Town in the early morning to get out of the channel with the high tide. Then we put the jib out and had a lazy sail to Man-O-War Cay. It was s short trip and we hadn’t been there. Since Bill had a business call that required them to hang around Hope Town area until later in the morning we weren’t going to be meeting up at any particular time. Man-O-War is a small cay, dry (as in no booze), known for its boat building and repair business,...

Apr 22, 2008 - We are in Boat Harbor Great Abaco

Hi There! We crossed from Eleuthra on Sunday April 20 to Little Harbor Great Abaco with WERPLAYIN and DREAMER. DREAMER had two Mahi Mahi on the lines but lost them but were willing to have all 8 of us for dinner at Little Harbor. It was lovely and the crossing was great...some wind small waves so we motor sailed across. It's certainly nice to be here in the Abacos again. It's amazing how rich they are compared to most of the other islands. We are now in Boat Harbor looking over a lovely resort with huge boats and the houses surrounding us...
