I saw on the news that a catamaran caught fire in Great Harbor last night. Thankfully, all aboard escaped and are ok.

It is astounding how fast a boat burns! I always tell the crew that we will likely have to decide within 4 minutes from the START of the fire (not when we discovered it) to abandon ship. It is truly the only thing that could happen on a boat that truly scares me.

Glad everyone got off alright!

Rob, have a great time my friend. JVD is a great island to spend a few days on. I heard a reference to White Bay years ago that I always thought was fitting. Spring Break for Adults.


Go Irish!!

I had asked several weeks ago if anyone else thought it was a problem that the charter captain we hired spent the night off the boat.........case in point.
