Where was everyone today? We had a great time with RickG, his lovely wife Christine, Captain Jay, and a few CYOA friends. Give us oysters and beer any day of the year and we were fine.

It was a beautiful day and we caught up with Tony & Phyllis of Mardi Gras at the TMM booth. It was greet to meet sail2wind and Nina for oysters and beers. I'm going to pop over at the end of the day on Saturday and look for a happy hour.

Cheers, RickG

We went on Sunday and visited Cuvee, a 2015 FP Saba 50.
We are chartering this boat in June, 2016.

Her owner brought her up from CYOA (St. Thomas) for the show, and she was located on Dock 3 across from the Show near the Chart House restaurant. Easy to take a 2-minute water-taxi ride over there.

Cuvee is a super-sized version of Big Papa Lulu, an FP Helia 44.

Immediately after we clambered aboard Cuvee yesterday, I was transported back to our trip to the SVI in August. They are soooo similar. Cuvee is huge though.

It was great seeing our long-time friends at CYOA, John Jacob, Captain Jay, Kirsten and her husband. We missed seeing Nancy, who didn't come up for the show this year.

They tried hard to get me to buy one of the two new Benny 45's going into the fleet. These new monohulls are incredible wide and have a ton of room in the cockpit. A far cry from the designs of even 10 years ago. Tons more livable space.

Maybe after I retire!

There's a lot of freeboard on that boat!

When standing in a dingy there would be no way to reach the cleats on the deck... I'm certainly not tall enough. I don't know what the height above water is, but it looks close to 10 feet. Seemed a little high to be jumping off into the water, which normally is no big thing.

At roughly 35,000lb this boat is about 50% heavier than an FP Helia 44.

had a blast, sorry we missed some folks!!! It is always sort of a whirlwind day trying to fit in all of the socializing and boat oogling. Thanks again to Colin and Jen for being such great hosts, a bunch of their previous BVI crew were there so we had possibly too much fun, hilarity and stories....great to hang with Capt Jim and Joyce! and a quick hello to Rick and Jay
