A Recap Of The Last Couple Weeks

We haven’t had good internet access lately, so I haven’t been able to post blogs. But we have been busy. From Big Majors Spot we sailed south through Exuma Sound to the Black Point settlement to deliver twelve boxes of school supplies, shown here in our cockpit, that we brought over from Florida as part of a Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) project. Then back to Staniel Cay to pick up parts for our 12-volt refrigeration system. Thankfully, we were able to resolve the issue of importing boat parts into the Bahamas; with a valid cruising permit, you don’t have to pay the 45% duty, which is good, because the duty on our package would have been $175. Once we had our parts, we headed south again to Issac Bay on Great Guana Cay, and from there to Little Farmers Cay, which I will detail in the next blog.
