Nov 28 - Safe arrival Prickly Bay, Grenada

Pos: N11deg59.7min/ W061deg45.8min. The seas were running about 6' and we rolled quite a bit with the wind and seas off the quarter and behind us, but the hardest part was slowing the boat down to make a daytime entry into Prickly Bay. Overall, it was a good passage, our first overnight since arrival in Trinidad. The island of Grenada showed up where it was supposed to...and entry was straight-forward. There's a flotilla of boats here, but we found a place to anchor without a problem. After breakfast and a brief rest, we dinghied to Budget Marine and I walked about a mile to the closest ATM to get Eastern Caribbean currency; present exchange rate is 2.67 EC/1 USD. I'm on the hunt for a boost pump for the watermaker. The Jabsco Water Puppy died, and the plan is to replace it with a March centrifical pump. Finding one is a challenge, and it looks like it will have to be shipped to Grenada, incurring an additional modest tax and charges. But, sometimes if you can just find the right item, it's worth all the hassle.
