Back in the Exumas
Nassau was nice but busy and we are happy to be back in the Exumas. The weather is predicted to cooperate for a couple of days so the running around should be pleasant. After that a blow is expected so we will hunker down somewhere.
The above pic is, "Octopussy"; at one time the fastest Megayacht in the world. Top speed 53 knots!!
That's 60 MPH on a Yacht that is 143 feet long! I met the Captain and he told me they usually only run around 30 knots and only burn 500 to 600 gallons an hour.
Hmmm.... Istaboa usually burns 5 to 6 gallons an hour.
We are looking forward to seeing our friends at Compass and delivering their supplies. Compass is a magical place. If you can... you should Google Earth (Compass Cay, Bahamas) it is unbelievable.
Net for now but not for long.
