Strange as it sounds, Compuserve's 800 number for the states goes through here. They told me it wouldn't, but who am I to know? It does!

I got the old computer back up and the modem working, the new computer is dead - real dead, but we should be back on line to some degree.

We're staying in Jamaica a couple more days. Several cruisers we'd met before showed up while we were waiting for customs to open up so we could clear out. It sounded like fun to stay and tour the island in a shared bus, so we're still here. The new agenda is to leave on Thursday for Grand Cayman. Hey, we're cruisin'. We can change our minds!

We're leaving Jamaica in a few minutes. We have about 25 knots forecast behind us - we should fly!

We're cleared, just need to gt to the boat (after sending this) and go!

See you soon,
