Raggamuffin is blessed enough to have many, many wonderful supporters who travel to Caye Caulker on holidays to take our tours, keeping us very busy throughout most of the year and for that we are very grateful. But it is not only our crew who are kept busy but also our trusty boats…..And with hard work comes general wear and tear. Our four sailboats – Ragga Queen, Ragga King, Ragga Gal and Ragga Prince – are continuously going back and forth to Hol Chan Marine Reserve or down to Placencia on 3 day trips and the constant sun and salt naturally take their toll.
So, at this time every year when the island has quietened down, we give the boats a break one at a time, hauling them out of the water and giving them a much needed makeover from top to bottom. They get a fresh coat of paint both inside and out, repairs are made and the engines get fine-tuned. And after a week of renovations the boats are shiny and new and ready to get back to work!
So far Ragga King and Ragga Prince have had their makeovers and are looking as good as new out on the water. This week it is Ragga Queens turn to get pampered
Soon all of our boats will be ready for another busy year at sea showing our passengers many of the beautiful sites to be found along Belize’s reef.
