Yesterday at 10:50 PM Car rental insurance [by bobbarb]
I know this has been discussed in the past but it was a long time ago. My recollection is that liability coverage is actually covered in your rental. While some car rentals will charge you an extra daily rate even though it's not needed. I am requesting this as I will be there this weekend and passed this information on to a friend who will be there this weekend as well. I know collision is separate but I have that covered with me credit card.

Yesterday at 09:20 PM Lio Kai grounded :-( [by MrEZgoin]
I was just informed by Jenn Andre of Moorings that our Leopard 40 was damaged when grounded on charter earlier this month.

The keels were extensively damaged, there is some damage to one of the rudders and the surveyor noted numerous cracks and bonding failures in the bilges. :-(

We were slated to be aboard in about 10 days, boat will obviously not be ready for our use. Replacement keels are on long backorder so they are proposing making up stub keels on site by using another boat's keels as a mold.

I have not yet responded. Has anyone gone through this process and would like to give any advice?

Yesterday at 07:47 PM French Health Pass for visitors - tried it? [by Kathleen]
Has anyone tried to apply for and/or successfully received the French Health Pass? I just applied today in advance of our 11/3 arrival. The process of applying was fairly easy - you need to upload a copy of your passport, vaccine card & airline ticket and answer some questions about where you're staying etc. I know I can just use a copy of my vaccine card plus ID, but wanted to see what would happen with the pass.

Will report back!

Yesterday at 07:21 PM Another Source for proctored BinaxNOW test kits [by ecm56]
A poster on one of the Facebook sites for the BVI made me aware that the Abbott’s "BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag At-Home Test Kit w/Telehealth" which have recently been unavailable from eMed are available from Abbott directly at

They are selling 1, 2, 3, or 6 test kits.

I have not heard what the expiration is on these tests - I will update if/when I find out.

They continue to be available from Optum at:


with the caveat that these tests may expire as soon as December 21, 2021.

Yesterday at 04:18 PM Ferry schedule February 2022 [by chrisfogle]
Arriving at St 2/23 and looking at ferry schedules to Tortola.
The current off season schedule shows the latest departure from Stt at 2:30pm.
Is it reasonable to expect later departures in February, say 4pm?

Yesterday at 01:23 PM Monkeys? [by blackmercedes]
Wondering how the crazy monkeys are at Loterie Farms? When we were there in April, it was hysterical watching them goofing around. There were a lot of them and they are big. I'm sure they are a problem for the establishment...but we are looking forward to watching them again next week and getting some new videos.

Yesterday at 11:24 AM And the best goes on.. [by fabila]
We had intermittent showers most of Sunday which did not deter us from having some beach time.

Meals so far have been dinner at Dinghy Dock, breakfast at SMYC (best Bloody Mary’s on the island). Dinner at Spaghetti house. Spaghetti House is a new find for us. I made a reservation for 7 via Instagram direct message. They take reservations for any size party which I highly suggest making. We all enjoyed our pasta and Caesar salad. In addition to menu options she had at least 5 special pastas for the evening. Beer & wine only. Portions were plentiful and very reasonable. No service charge added.

Yesterday at 03:56 AM Testing Timeline - Abbott ID Now [by carlnsue]
In trying to line up all of the testing requirements for our trip this Friday, I found us in a time squeeze. Can’t take the test too early because of the rules, but can’t take it too late or won’t have the results back in time to submit to EHAS, who said to allow 12 hours for their own processing.

Crazy, did an Excel spreadsheet and figured we had a three hour window to get tested, whether PCR or Antigen test.

So we are getting a PCR and hoping it comes back earlier than their stated turnaround, but also getting an Abbott ID Now molecular test which is a rapid test but MIGHT qualify as a PCR (different tech, but similar performance)..

Anyone use the Abbott IDNow like this?

Yesterday at 03:55 AM BinaxNow/eMed Test Accepted! [by freedomfighter]
Hello All,
Just wanted to let you all know that the BinaxNow Covid- Ag Card Home Test is indeed accepted by EHAS!
My wife and I took the proctored test this afternoon in the comfort of our home. Had the results a few minutes
after completing the test. The results that were emailed to us, clearly state that this is a "home test". We both
now have EHAS Authorized Pre-Approval. Driving to Miami tomorrow. Dinner at Ruth Chris, flying to SXM on
Tuesday morning for our 20th vacation in SXM!
The test results that we received were password protected. The password was our date of birth. Even after
saving the PDF to my desktop, it took the password to open/view it. Had to print, scan and save as PDF again
to make it usable for EHAS. If you upload the PDF that you receive from eMed, EHAS will NOT be able to open/
view it, and you will be denied. Print, scan, save, upload a non- password protected version and you will be good
to go!
