Anchoring in the Exuma's

Last Summer we spent 6 weeks, nearly all at anchor, in the Exumas, away from jet skis “and other noise makers”. This is our idea of family fun and quiet relaxation, enjoy the pictures.

What does it take to have this much fun?

According to her owners start with a shallow draft, a strong pulpit/anchor & chain setup to hold you tight and a 4000 watt inverter system. That electrical system also involves two generators allowing us to “cycle the 20kW for the 4pm-midnight operation when demand is high, then the 10kW takes over to provide overnight coverage and we invert from 10am-4pm.

Key to a long stay are the creature comforts and for that our 62’s pilothouse is outfitted with a 36 bottle wine cooler (and storage for 2 more cases), a serious ice maker, dual freezer drawers and a real oven for home made pizza and prime rib. Toss in 800 gpd watermaker to keep the ice and showers flowing and you’ll be the poster image of Rest and Recreation.
