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. The British West Indies is wonderful. Great sunsets, very nice people and super conditions. (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 the beach/bar thing, alot of snorkeling and a few dives. The boat was beautiful and FAST - I was flying the jib alone on one morning in 15 knots - clipping at a steady 7+ knots - WHAT A BLAST!
Thanks to everyone who provided info on the sites and places to see/eat/drink. My newby crew did a very good job and a great time was had by all. Can't wait to go to Australia/New Zealand in 2010!
Cya out there on the wind.
Mike

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
