AIS and Marine Traffic

Whenever I leave Reboot at anchor I am always concerned that she will drag. In the past there was no way of knowing. Enter AIS and web based tracking systems like Marine Traffic. If the AIS pn Reboot is left on I can get detailed position information from my web browser. It is usually not. Ore than a couple of minutes old. I can look up Reboot and confirm she is still in the same place. Nice. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

B.V.I Marine Management Inc.


While in Nanny Cay Marina we had need for some machine shop support The tube that locks the swing door for the Monitor wind vane had become distorted. After disassembling half the Monitor we got it loose. The distortion needed to be ground out. Enter B.V.I. Marine Management. They did a nice job of getting the tube back to round. The next day we were checking the rigging and found one of the shrouds very loose. Alas the turnbuckle was jammed and would not respond to multiple applications of “Blaster.” We managed to get the clevis pin loose and detached the turnbuckle from the shroud. Down to B.V.I. Marine again. They were able to get it loose and return it to Reboot
