I have been using Brave.com browser and Brave app for iphone all day. Seems really fast and they promise not to be selling your search data and all that stuff.

Just used it to find TTOL.

6 hours ago Indigo iBay, Pelican key, Beacon Hill or Red Pond [by Mbrott]
We had a place reserved in Beacon hill that fell through. Looking for pluses and minuses of the locations above.

Beacon is the most expensive for what you get

Pelican is nice but traffic around Billy Foyle Road

Indigo Bay traffic to and from Simpson bay? Remote?

Red Pond...kind of remote?

We are traveling the end of May...

thanks

Yesterday at 09:56 PM Sandwiches on the way to the beach [by JohnandBev]
Hi, will be staying in the Maho area [RI]

We often grabbed some sandwiches on the way to the beach.

Pre Irma when we stayed at RI used the store in Porto Cupecoy, but wondering about
Carrefour in Jordan Village, Monoprix just before Marigot, Super U and Petit Casino
While we have often shopped both Super U and Petit Casino, never looked if they had pre made sandwiches. Monoprix will be a first for us, seems convenient to Maho area.

Not keen on the Maho village store's subs

Note, not so sure on my planning, missing both Moon Splash and the Bucket regatta, oh well, it's all toes in the sand starting later next week

Yesterday at 04:51 PM “Toadies” Last Days [by SurferMike]
We really loved the new and improved Horny Toad. It still kept the size and charm of the original. If you’ve ever stayed here or a first timer, give Deb a call and she’ll set up a time to show you around. She and her husband Doug couldn’t be nicer. The restaurants we dined at, Mario’s Bistro, Bavaria, The Palm, Dingy Dock, Moulin Fou, etc,etc were all great. Sale E Pepe was a first for us and was quite good. One little restaurant, almost totally hidden, is Guayabera Beach Club. At the east end of Simpson Bay, take the one way road in back of the Police Station and walk or drive a bit. It’s on the water (barely a beach) with free lounge chairs to use regardless if you eat there. But do try the food, it’s very good. We don’t remember Sublimes when it was in Cupecoy, but a visit the other night was a nice dining experience. You’ll find them along the back road in Simpson Bay, very close to the White Swan. The waitress Jay couldn’t have been nicer. Listening to her Irma survival story, we were spellbound. The cook Das came out of the kitchen and we had a chat with him also. His burger was the best on the island (as well as back home on Long Island). Interesting menu as well. Frenchy Ludos, a “ French Fusion “ restaurant, which used to be Saratoga and then Charter House, was a very pleasant dining evening. Almost big city charm inside, tropical and scenic outside. Good menu with good choices. Our last night was spent at Izi’s. Also our first time there (it only took 16 years). Again, no problems with it. Food was good. We can’t remember having a bad meal this trip. Dany’s chicken at Copecoy had a burnt taste to it. First time we weren’t happy with it. I think be needs to clean the grill more often. In my next rant, I’ll mention the beaches we visited. Some surprises there.

Yesterday at 04:00 PM BVI to USVI and back [by kgiesselman]
Would someone be so kind as to walk me through the steps/procedures for a BVI-USVI-BVI transit? We have a 433PC from the Moorings out of Tortola. It has the proper USCG documents (our boat). We are US citizens. We are relatively new boaters (third trip) and my wife wants to go to St. John.

I have pieced together some of the processes by searching the forum but would really like to not have a gotcha during this first rip. We are marginally competent at anchoring so any difficult anchorages should be highlighted. It would be really useful to have this quite detailed, step by step, without any assumptions that we know how to do X or Y. We can navigate from Tortola to a specific USVI destination, certainly, unless there is a specific don't go this way. Any forms that we can download and pre-complete would be good to know about too.

Thanks!
