Ascent Trip ReportWe woke up at 6:30am so we could catch the wednesday ferry to Saba from St. Maarten. We got on board but quickly realized by ourselves that the ferry was working only on one engine. They tried to bring the second engine to speed 6 times, and ultimately told us its fuel pump was failing. Almost halfway to Saba, they turned around and brought us back to St. Maarten for a refund.
The ascent on our very last day of vacation was thus cancelled. I'll be back in the future though. Sea to summit.
