Any news on Captain Compass boats? Very few pictures of Sea Cow Bay. On some shots there seems to be a few mast standing up where Brent keeps his boats: between an island and the docks. Hopefully his local knowledge payed off.

Ahoy All TTOL!
Brent Here!
Alive and healing up.
I will have a minority of the yachts in service for Thanksgiving and a majority of the yachts in service for Christmas.
Secret Oasis, the Voyage 580 in Nanny Cay boat yard lost it's main sail, replacement on the way, otherwise very good.
The 6 yachts I secured to the small mangrove island in Sea Cow Bay all moved less than 1'.
With varying degrees of work I expect them all to be ready by Christmas, if not sooner.
I am flying in my own surveyor and other tradesmen to facilitate the quality and speed of the repairs.
Thanks to all those sharing Positive ... Anything!
Fair Winds, Brent

Ahoy All,

I am lucky that thanks to hard work in August I have yachts that I can put back into service by Christmas if I can get the parts, and lucky that I have the support of my yacht Owners and my Guests.
Since starting on Nov 1 we cleared the decks on the 6 yachts in the trees and brought the first of those boats to the dock, and painted the bottom on the 58í and launched it.
On Nov 10 I received written authorization from the Insurance Company to act as General Contractor for the repairs and I received the reparation quotes for each yacht from the Riggers.
Restaurants and businesses are re-opening up every day. Utilities and food supplies are improving every week. Riteways Grocery store is fully stocked with fresh Dairy and Triple A USDA Beef.
The nautical side is clear and gentle and sublime as 50 years ago, there are less boats, and all the old fashioned beach bars are new and clean and green .
I have power, water, wifi, clean laundry, and a Big Cup Of Tea.
I am healthy and energized and looking forward to the next Great Challenge of my Life!

Fair Winds,
Brent

Capt† Brent, as one of your boat owners I can't thank you enough for all your efforts protecting our boats from Irma and now repairing the damage.† We have so much comfort knowing we will be down the beginning of December able to sail the BVI again.† I'll give a detailed report of our cruise at that time. For now, Brent (Captain's Compass)† is one of the great charter companys† rebounding and getting his fleet up and running. Island Fun lives and sails thanks to Brent

I am always amazed at the lack of respect and courteous behavior that some display on this forum. Everyone has opinions but maybe keep them to yourself. I prefer to read the positivity given the tragic circumstances in the islands. If someone is doing well then I am excited for the islands and the boat owners!

Great news Captain Brent!
