BVI TRIP A GREAT SUCCESS!

Ahoy Friends,Well, we completed our BVI trip a couple of weeks ago......What a blast!! The eight of us went out for a week on a 45' cat, the Dodger II and it was tremendous.

BVI trip starting in a couple of weeks!

As I said before, we (4 couples) are bare-boating a 45' cat for 9 days in January. We are looking for additional suggestions for great anchorages, great food, nightlife, caution spots, etc. We have received several ideas, and as it gets closer to the trip, I am asking for any additional suggestions that we should see.



Anything current that we should know would be greatly appreciated as well!



We love to party, and we also enjoy basking in the sun at beautiful… Continue

Mike Brown replied to Michael Cioffi's discussion Anchor motor in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Mike I assume it won't go down. There's a small green relay mounted on the engine just behind the alternator. Usually they fail so the windlass will either raise or drop the anchor. It's possible that it could cause it to quit working…"
