We moved off the Superyacht Berth and out onto the bay (cheaper and cooler) but we do need a new battery, the start battery has gone Dodo like. Just as for antifouling paint Antigua is not the place to buy batteries. Guadeloupe would be the nearest place with sensible prices but it's a bit un-seamanlike to leave harbour with a known major problem. Several failed attempts at local chandlers, a credit card which stopped working and a taxi ride to the north of the island later, I manage to buy a start battery for the price of an off-season week's skiing.
