After weeks of waiting, our new powerboat “Rock Hoppin’“, a 32 FS Regulator, finally made it’s way from South Carolina down to St. Thomas, where we picked it up on Tuesday, May 20th…
We had to go to the Nisky for excise tax and then claim the board at customs. It was shipped on a trailer, so we called a tow truck to have it pulled from the Seastar Cargo Yard into the water, then it was time for Captain Steve to start the engines and back it up into the water and off he went for the maiden voyage to St. John while Lucy had the fun task of bringing the trailer back on the car barge….
It’s a really comfortable powerboat, with forward-facing, cushioned seating. It has twin Yamaha 250s and is moored in Cruz Bay, in front of the Beach Bar. It will provide you with a very comfortable, dry ride! We are looking forward to taking you out on a Private Charter for example to Jost van Dyke. We surf and paddleboard, so our charter is surfer and paddler-friendly. We can take you out on a downwinder, you can take your boards on the charter, or you can rent 2 paddleboards for your day trip for 100$ instead of 130$. We can be your escort boat during a crossing or take you to those surf spots that are only accessible by boat.
Here are the photos of Rock Hoppin’s maiden voyage:
