We have been in Grenada for over a month now and have had a chance to explore some of the bays that line the south coast. Each one has it's own personality and style. Some are very well protected and some are rolly. Some are handy to shopping and some are very isolated. If you are in the mood to get away from it all, you can find a place or if you like lots of action you can find that too. The people are very friendly and we feel very safe here. There was a burglary on a boat during Carnival but the perps were caught and the property was returned. There has been no violent crime reported and there is a very active cruisers network.
The cruising community is very strong with everyone really looking out for their fellow cruisers. It is a very friendly and tight knit community that welcomes everyone who has managed to get this far. We have met so many great people, but then, cruisers are a special breed.
Next week we plan to take a tour of the islang and visit some of the land based attractions. Will report back on what we find. Guess that's all for now.
Fair winds to all.

We did take a self guided island tour. We went to the Belmont Estate chocolate factory, ummm and visited the rain forest, beautiful.
We also spent time at a place called Concord Falls. A beautiful little waterfall with a nice pool at the bottom. It was a treat to swim in cool fresh water. Our dog tootsie loved it! especially the chance to drink the water while swimming around in it. Keep Grenada on your list it is a beautiful island. Yes we are having a great time here but the time is going by really fast.

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
