"David, you've been living a very protected life, I'm afraid. Dominoes is one of the most played games in the world so I'm not sure I would say that it's making a comeback. To answer your question, we were playing last night with some friends. It's a…"
"There are, of course, two sides to every story and there will be arguments for and against. I'm sure the chamber of Commerce will welcome it but the residents will hate it. From my point of view, Key West is too crowded anyway now, a few more…"
"Thanks David, I'm trying to make it a public repository of valuable information for BVI visitors, especially yachting visitors. If you have anything to contribute to it please feel free - I'll publish it in your name and give you a link."
"Haven't seen the coral objets d'art yet but I'll check it out. Dick Aragorn ALWAYS has beautiful stuff. Incidentally I have a new blog with a bunch of articles that answer many questions for first timers (and also regulars..!!) Pls…"
"To Vincent, there is actually an extension of the Miami overhead train service that is currently under construction. This WILL be a big deal when it's finished because you can take the train from downtown to the airport. Hope they don't run out of…"
"Not too many Road Warriors in the Caribbean, I used to be one years ago and it was arguably the cushiest job in the Ford Motor Company ; I don't think anyone in Detroit even knew that the job existed - would have probably been fired instantly.... !!…"
"Just to add another thought to Patricia's, there is a tendency to forget that much of the Caribbean i.e. St. Martin, St. Barth, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Cuba, St. Vincent, the Grenadines caters almost exclusively to European visitors who do not visit…"
"Excellent question from Northeast News. I think all the islands would be affected, especially in this post-recession era - but perhaps not equally. I suppose it will also depend on whether the Cruise Ships will be allowed in or not. I think St.…"
The idea is that a bare-boater can go to our bareboat site, click on the search engine button, fill in the basic stuff like, date, duration, number of cabins, location, and even model - and bingo he will get a list of boats that meet the criteria. Eventually we will have a system where he can place a hold on the boat or can actually book with a credit card. This last feature will be coming in a month or two.
We currently have about 1800 bareboats on the search engine in different locations worldwide. We are currently in very positive conversations with the Moorings, Moorings Power, Footloose and Sunsail to have their internal search engine on our site as well. This will give us an additional 1500 or more boats accessible from our website.
In the meantime I've started generating some buzz around this new site and frankly I'm glad that you responded to my Tripatini profile and comment. I appreciate your interest and if you need more information, I'm here to help.
This new site complements our other existing fully-crewed yacht charter sites: www.boatbvi.com ; www.boatmiami.com ; www.luxuryachtvacation.com and www.caribbeanyachtvacations.com
Cheers, Tony K.
