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.

(A little pricey at the restaurants - but we only ate off the boat 1 lunch and 2 dinners)Everyday was warm (82-85degrees), the water crystal clear and the wind was 10 to 18 knots. I sailed into a different cove every night. We did…See More

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

"Simo, see my reply to the original post. There are a lot of items in the steering system that can cause heavy steering. Ensure everything is properly adjusted and lubricated before you do any major work on the rudder bearings. Good luck Mike"
