Willy T: Bad News, Now Good News!!

After the legendary Willy T floating pub and party pirate ship dragged anchor during the BVI hurricanes and was destroyed, the owners set to find another---converting a vessel in the U.S. and taking it to the Willy T location on Norman Island.  At first, it seemed all was fine and then the BVI government suddenly decided they didn't want Willy on Norman Island where, it seems, a luxury resort was being developed that didn't want anyone rowdy in their bay.  The government caved, and the Willy T was out.  

But, after meetings with the government in May, owner Ewan Anderson was able to have a hopeful commitment that the Willy T would be welcome at Great Harbour on Peter Island.  Anderson described the government as "helpful" and that permits were being processed.  The new Willy T appears to be a converted oil rig supply vessel, so doesn't have the "piraty" look with masts and poop deck for guests to jump off.  But, judging from the joyful response, the bareboat charter world is just happy to have Willy back.
