In my book, I told about finding, and buying, a great outboard on St. Thomas. It was a used boat, but in pristine condition, and was a real workhorse for many years. Here are a couple of pictures of it in use.
George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI)
where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar.
George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
