  1. Hi guys, as always i am enjoying reading your blog, i have been here in grenada for the last 3 weeks and already i have forgotton about the trip over, especially the rolling, it makes every little job like even making a brew difficult. Your trip seems a lot more eventful than mine already, all i saw was 2 pods of pilot whales, 1 pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins , one sea turtle and not a single other vessell, but the fishing was great.I will keep following your progress, hope all goes well for you and you dont have any gear failure, paradise is not far away now, take care
