If you have enough crew you might want to motor into Road Harbor and launch the dinghy and take them to Village Cay marina which is a 3 minute walk to the ferry dock, this way you won’t have to anchor.
The 10 is the Roadtown fast ferry. Someone stated they have issues with certification of one of their boats in the USVI. Can’t confirm that but when they canceled our 10AM one of their new boats showed up doing BVI only legs.
You wan't believe this but I was told they cant get the new ferries approved until they are used. Something with USA certification.. i.e. new boat can't get approval but used can. Sounds stupid to me but that,s politics.
That seems to be true tho I cannt find the relevent code. STT to BVI is not covered by the Jones act because that law only pertains to activities between US ports. RTFF's new boats were built in Austrailia so they cannot be used in US trade until they reach a certain age. It may be some USCG or Customs regulation.
