Here’s how the book got started.


On our way down-island I borrowed Marie’s little typewriter to make some notes for the book. I did this on my lap in our forward quarters in Water Lily. I am so glad I did this; the notes sure came in handy much later. Here is a picture of my setup: R1-01598-33

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.
