Well, I have been learning from you guys for months and it is about that time - wheels up Tuesday. Even though we are first time bareboaters, I feel reasonably prepared and in the right mindset to relax and enjoy. Does anyone have any more specific tricks or tips they are willing to share. For example, when we are in St. John, I don't like the inconvenience of buying ice daily for the cooler. Therefore, to supplement the villa ice maker, I keep all of our happy hour cups, rinse them out quickly, fill them and put them in the freezer over night. That might not work on this trip, but it works beautifully on land for cooler ice blocks.
Anything that has an impact on your enjoyment would be appreciated.
