    Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn adventures fired up my imagination as a kid, as it provided a way out of studies. I used to imagine myself doing the same like them without a care in the world, rather than be trapped by the four corners of the room with my head in the books.
    Now that I have grown older, the situation is still the same. I am trapped by bills now instead of books :D

    LOL you know cellphone these days use Artificial Intelligence, so know my mind being in the gutter my assumed I could not possible be talking about a book, it had to be something else. :jimlad:

    I am not familiar with character or the book. As a child I grew up with tales or Hercules, Jason and the Trojan horse.

    God of Jetboaters I dare say .....For the task he was given, he had a shitty boat, but an awesome crew. He was one of the argonauts ( like we are jetnaut, LOL ) . You know Golden Fleece and stuff. I can talk probably write an essay on it but will put the forum to sleep

    I am hearing chirps of improvement at Bimini Sands.

    Hopefully we will know more in December.

    Otherwise 2019 will be the year of the many small group trips.

    Yes. We very equal opportunity for the type of boats they join. We had a Cat in 2018 and all sort of center console as well chaps and even a Glastron.
    We even have jetskis.

    We had the privilege of meeting some of the children!
    I went ashore and they came out to play and made sure my boat didn't hit the rocks. At least that's what they said. They just wanted to play with my kids and jump off the boat!

    RW says they are only closing for a couple of weeks. We will have to wait and see what happens.

    RW guests are not looking for a real Bimini experience so I expect they would go to another islasnd.

    The question at Bimini Sand is whether the rental pool will open back up and if so if Peter Maury will still be there to sabotage the business.
