Letter to Dockside Boat Repair

From: McGray, Donald J
Sent: Tuesday, November 30, 2010
To: 'captain.bob@docksideboatrepair.com'
Subject: RE: Fiberglass Repair
Bob,
"Since I work downtown Houston, nights or weekends are the only times available. I leave home at 6am and get home at 6pm daily.  However, I am off Friday Dec 10th  and will be using my boat that day. Perhaps we can find some time that day? I will go out to the boat this evening to take a look at the fiberglass repair.I have to admit, you guys did the job very quickly… Dependable folks who keep their word in the boat business seem to be a rare find, so I appreciate the relationships you have established . Dave has high praise for your work ethic and professionalism.
That does mean a lot!" Talk to you soon, Don

Charter Concerns

 

Before you charter any boat you should ask them the following...

  • Does your vessel have Charter Insurance to Protect You? Ask to see their policy.
  • Is the Captain Licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard?
  • Does your Captain have a License that allows more than 6 passengers?
  • Is your Captain in a random drug screening program; which is required by the U.S. Coast Guard
  • How much experience does the Captain have? Captain Bob has over 60,000 blue water miles and has crossed the Atlantic 3 times.
  • Does the boat carry the proper safety equipment & first aid?
  • Meet the crew and tour the boat prior to spending
  • Look at Windsong before you spend
  • Other boats pictures can be deceiving. Windsong has more room than any other sailboat within 500 miles. (photo below) Windsong on the left...

Concerns

"Windsong is the largest legal sailing vessel on Galveston Bay."


The Island of Jost Van Dyke, BVI

Next months issue will cover both a new yacht & Broker.

 

JOST VAN DYKE, four miles long, is truly the "barefoot" island known by travelers around the world for its casual lifestyle, protected anchorages, fine beaches and beachfront restaurants and bars. Picture-postcard tropical isles, like Green Cay and Sandy Spit, Foxy's sends an invitation to a special place.

 


A main street that's a beach, the Stress Free Bar, a harbour known for its Lobster feasts, a bypass road that's just a short-stroll, the Soggy Dollar bar named for a patron who swam ashore and home of the Painkiller drink--this is the life that defines laid back!

 

A favorite destination of yachties, Jost Van Dyke hosts the famous Foxy's New Year's parties that make one giant raft-up of Great Harbour.

 

My most favorite spot is White Bay where you will find Sandcastle a hideaway favored with sea breezes, hammocks and beach strolls. And the home The Soggy Dollar Bar... Soggy Dollar Bar at Sandcastle, got its name from the soggy condition of the dollar bills from sailors who swam ashore.

The Painkiller, born here, is a delight made (strongly) from dark rum (often Pusser's), pineapple juice (4 parts), orange juice ( 1 part), and Coco Lopez (1 part sweetened cream of coconut) with fresh nutmeg ground on top (Pusser's recipe--the Soggy Dollar's is a closely guarded secret).

 

It is illegal in the BVI not to try its most famous drink! Soggy Dollar Bar Birthplace of the Painkiller.

 

To find out more click on the BVI's website here... Soggy Dollas Bar.
