La Marin, Martinique N 14.28 W60.52 June 1 – 11 2010

This is great spot for Yachties with any kind of needs including a floating drydock in the anchorage capable of lifting larger catamarans. It was quite something to watch. There is excellent shopping for the ladies, very expensive and some inexpensive French wines and virtually any kind of mechanical service required. It is also the home of one of the best Raymarine Technicians I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. His name is Jacques (the Genius). If he can’t fix it…it can’t be fixed…He is good, but you will have to put up with his French humour which can be somewhat brutal to the initiated…be ready to laugh at yourself cause he can make you feel a little ‘stupid’….in a nice kind of way :o) Jacques is located directly above Customs.

This island has a rich history and the architecture is old world. The people are friendly and the scenery is island idyllic. Doc enjoyed his daily swims to shore and back, then he dons his Tilley and hangs out on his boarding ladder. It’s all good!
