Marsh Harbor Daze

...The Jib Room Steak Night is to die for....
We are simply living, or should I say, living simply, here in Marsh Harbor, Abaco, Bahamas. It is a simple and easy life here on anchor with trips to the massive Maxwell's Grocery store or Standard Hardware store or simply a walk around town. Then there are dinghy rides around the harbor to visit with boating friends. Of course, the real draw in Marsh Harbor is the JIB ROOM, where Wednesday night is RIB NIGHT and Saturday night is STEAK NIGHT.
These are must attend events! The food is always fantastic, the drinks are reasonably priced, the owners are superb people, and the entertainment is really fun. How can we NOT go to The Jib Room? We go....nearly every time we are here!

Yes, living on the anchor in Marsh Harbor is easy. You can get plenty of work done on the boat because there are many services and supply houses to keep your boat running. If not, then hire an import company to fly in whatever you need, for a 45% duty tax!

Here are a few photos of the Marsh Harbor Daze....

Oh yea, we tore off the alternator once again for another rebuild with  parts flown-in for $$$.
Let's see if this works better. It was working fine on the last rebuild, but I wanted new, original parts.
So, life is a DAZE and we can see how boaters easily make Marsh Harbor a base. You have everything you need here.

We do plan to move on soon, breaching the WHALE CAY passage and starting our travels north .... anytime .... anytime... soon .... :)

I noticed a problem in the photo of your engine. There's no oil and rust all over. You'll have to be careful with that. I can show you what an engine is supposed to look like.
