Well, it is that time again and we find 5KNOTS back on the hard in a boat yard. This year she will stay at Grenada Marine Boat Yard (GMBY) in Grenada. This hurricane season Renee and I will be going to France to visit our oldest son Anthony and his family, Amel, Lalia and Maelie. We are very much looking forward to going.
We have several projects that need to get completed before we can set sail again in November. It didn’t take long to figure out that getting things done down here in Grenada is going to be more difficult than doing them in the United States. First, everybody is on island time so things just turn a little slower. Second, getting parts you need is also a challenge because in order to get parts here you will have to pay the extra shipping, a duty on goods entering the country and possibly paying a broker to handle the logistics. We are attempting to just have parts shipped directly to 5KNOTS at the yard or we just order them locally.
