Hi,
A couple of things.
I am planning on relocating to STT (been there many times) next Nov. 1, 2011.
Does anyone have any advice on what local excursion businesses look for in a mate?
For example, Pirates Penny, etc. I have e mailed some of these businesses but they do not respond. Also, I have been in contact with several VI govt agencies about starting a small consumer fireworks business down there. I understand "Island Time" but it has been a month or more with no reply. Also, what is the best way to find a place to live before I go? As a roommate, a small apt off a house ???
Thanks Bill

E-mail here will not get you a response. People just don't use it as much. Phone is your best alternative. Or visiting the offices during your next vissit.

And if you get an anwering machine or voice mail, they probably won't return your call. Just call them back until you get a live person.

Bill: For crew jobs it is definitely "being on island" that counts. Also having: CPR, first aid and water safety skills, either knowledge of boats, marine sea life or something to set yourself apart from the hoards of partying seasonal workers who inundate the employers every year.

Consumer fireworks are illegal. Heck, even the professionals have nearly burned down Hassel Island...twice.

True about the fire works!
i couldn't believe it, did they even take the wind direction into account??
During one of these fireworks, I was tacking care of a boat, we had to move iot under DPNR protest as it was moored In Hassle Island & getting lots of ashes on it!
