Regarding John North's complaint with chartering company North South. I arrived BVI 2 days prior to charter date with N/S and used that time to investigate JN's complaint. The true story involves two charter companies and a dive service. In my view, JN got off easy having to pay only $500. We had a great charter with N/S, found the boat to be as represented and their people were very helpful. Maybe it's the difference between a real sailor and a novice sailor.
