Well we made it to Grenada. We had a great sail down, even having to reef down because we were going to fast and would arrive before daylight. So far we have found the people here to be much more helpful than in Trinidad. The boat looked great when she went in the water with her hull painted and polished and here new bottom paint, as well as her new dodger and bimini. I was so looking forward to not having to go up and down the ladder to go to the toilet and lo and behold the head sprung a leak and we had to bucket and chuck it the first night we were at anchor.  Barry took the dinghy back to Chaguraramus the next day and got parts to fix the head so it is all good at the moment. 
The other problem was that the outboard dinghy motor decided it wasn't going to work when we got to Grenada so Barry had to row us to shore to get checked in.  We needed money to check in so we had to take a taxi to town to get money.  We are in a spot called Prickly Bay and it is pretty well to do, the homes are really nice and the grounds are all landscaped with beautiful flowers.  I finished the eighth coat of varnish on the hand rails on the deck today so that's it for another few months.  I will try and get some pictures of Grenada the nest time we go ashore. 
Polishing the hull, getting off the horrible stains from acid rain.
