Thanks nature, Vacations in BVI was wonderful...

Nice present form Mother Nature, we spend 2 wonderful weeks in BVI end of August
The dream, no boat in BVI during this period almost BVI for us
and bonus weather was wonderful no wind flat and crystalline water.
Just 50kts of wind during 2 hours (was depression Hermine)
Super MAN was super easy MAN just 10 minutes on engine room during 20 days at sea not bad

Work is good for the soul! Makes the vacation times even better!

Yes, but you have to deal with yacht owners and I am guessing that they can be a very impatient, entitled, demanding bunch at times!

That true but between Yacht owner we can have discussion....

My philosophy and I tell to all crew and captain ...

Owner pay bill all year long and very often use yachts for very shot time during the year, we need to give all energy and solution to make all working during this shot period because if they can't enjoy they going to sale the boat and we going to lose customer and crew going to lost their job...

some of the crew understand some not...

I'm working frequently during night or weekend my passion my respect to owner but is owner or captain don't respect me I take gangway and go back on dock

Understand.

How do you get about the islands? I'm guessing since you are a Caribbean-wide business you sometimes need to get to remote locations - or at least send your people there. Or do you have third party mechanics on call in those locations?

Yeah, "yacht" owners can be just like your average boat owner at times.
