Some of the most memorable and happiest times of my life were aboard my M/V Pelagic. My brand new wife (with zero boating experience) and I spent six wonderful months in the Exuma chain in the Bahamas. I remember each passage and each anchorage as if it was yesterday. When we reached the Great Exuma, we anchored across Elizabeth Harbor at a perfect horseshoe anchorage at Stocking Cay, and didn’t move for over a month. Georgetown was just a 1 mile dinghy ride to the big island where the grocery store had a cruisers dock and free R.O. water. Closer on Stocking was Chat and Chill, a small open air bar that served burgers. The conch salad shack was at the water’s edge. Many a day we walked barefoot across the island to the Exuma Sound and the most pristine white sand beach I’ve ever seen. My grandsons never get tired of hearing my cruising stories, and I am never tired of telling them.
