RVG windvane self-steering gear

We have been getting many inquiries concerning our post from many years ago that had information about the RVG windvane. The files were on a website that we took down.

We know how difficult it can be to find stuff on the internet so I have uploaded the files to another website to help out our fellow cruisers...

As the good Doctor says, "Allons-y !"

I've noticed that there are quite a few postings on the web looking for information about the RVG self steering gear / windvane.

We have info in jpg files and pdfs. The jpg files are smaller but look and see which best fits your needs.

Hurricane Irma: 8-month anniversary

Can't believe 8 months have passed since Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Irma hit the Virgin Islands on September 7, 2017. It pretty much had no affect on us in St Croix compared to the VIs to our north. We up anchored and ventured over to Salt River to ride out Irma which was good preparation for Hurricane Maria which struck the night of September 19-20, 2017.

Wow! sums it up pretty good.

Hurricane Maria was #10 in the top ten list of most intense hurricanes ever.

The official beginning of 2018 H-season is only 24 days away.

Here's a YouTube video that was posted yesterday by News Of St John

Prepare early and check on those folks that are around you.

So It Goes...
