Long Island Cruisers Net
Posted: 22 Mar 2017 04:06 AM PDT
The chartbooks indicate that the Cruisers Net in Salt Pond is at 0830 on Channel 18. However, after the previous net manager abandoned it the net was changed to 0815 on Channel 18. I recently mentioned this to FAIRHAVEN the net manager and she is considering moving it back to 0830. If you sail into Thompson Bay and Salt Pond feel free to hail FAIRHAVEN and confirm the time she is doing the net. Lots of great info for new cruisers about the lively happenings for boaters there.
Nothern Exumas cell service
Posted: 22 Mar 2017 04:05 AM PDT
we spend more time in the southern Exumas (Gtown to staniel) and this was our first time stopping around Normans and shroud since the hurricane. Don’t know if it’s related but cell service was worst than before, either no bars or a couple of bars but no connection.
Much better coverage in staniel, farmers, barraterre and Gtown
Normans cay update

Looks like work has restarted on the marina project. We were there yesterday and dozers were working (on a Sunday…) on opening the access to the new marina basin, they had big generator powered lights indicating they may even be working late in the evening.
