Just a note to address the rest of the trip. I got really sick in Martinique. I seem to have an allergy to something on that island that grows around Fort de France. Same thing happened on the way south but to a lesser extent. This time I was delayed there by first carnival and then by a French charter boat ramming me while I was at anchor. By the time all the welding and fabrication was complete and Temptress was again sea worthy I was a mess. Coughing to the point that I seemed to have damaged my lungs. I sailed out and started north. I just got worse and worse. I had a time commitment to meet my mother in the Virgins and by the time I got there I found without pushing myself I could only stay awake about three hours a day. It responded to antibiotics and the second round killed it so I guess I had bacterial pneumonia. All turned out well. After dropping my mom and her friend off I sailed to Puerto Rico and hung out with some sailing friends for a couple of months. I kind of stayed too long and miss the trade winds. I had a lot of thunderstorms and light winds on my way home and just got to the keys before Hurricane season started.
