Soggy Dollar’s concrete slab.

When I was ready to build Soggy Dollar’s slab, I got out my book on concrete construction. I remembered that it had some info on constructing plywood forms for pouring gracefully curved edges of slabs, like curved sidewalks, etc.

You can easily bend plywood forms by cutting lots of slots on the outside of the forms. You can then bend the forms into graceful curves, then spiking them in place. This is what I did for the Soggy Dollar slab. Take a look!



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.
