I’ve been in Grenada for a month now but it sure doesn’t feel like it…thanks to the ability to work from my boat. Technology ruins everything once again.
Simple ways that you can stretch every penny while out cruising on your sailboat – of course budget-dependent – but these are some things that work for me.
Think you don’t have the means to support yourself if you went sailing off into the sunset? It is possible, and this is how I and others go about making money while cruising.
My depth sounder failed on me the day before hauling the boat out of the water – great timing! Replacing it was a little more work that I thought it’d be.
Grenada is home to the first “underwater sculpture park” in the world, just off of Moliniere Point, and the unique sculptures can be accessed by snorkelers, divers, and boaters.
What’s your criteria when you select a boatyard for storage? Price? Location? Party opportunities? St. Kitts Marine Works is by far cheaper than anything else I’ve found and central to most islands.

Boatyard Fever: like Cabin Fever, but while living aboard your boat in a boatyard. It’s been five weeks and I can’t take it any longer – I need to get wet!
My first voyage sailing offshore from North Carolina down to Antigua was a little rough – fortunately I kept notes to better myself, and hopefully you too.
The earliest, most well-preserved colonial fortress in the New World is on the island of St. Kitts. Brimstone Hill is not to miss.
