Chester Merchants Press Release

Thanks to Miss Hancock I have spent my entire week at every village venue sharing tales of high seas adventure on the Nova Star. For those of you I missed at the Save Easy/ Post Office/ Building Supplies or under a table at the Fo'c'sle, here's the scoop....

It was fantastic ! The boat is pristine clean and fresh, the linens top notch, the bar prices are reasonable, the food is delicious, plentiful and well presented and the staff are professional, courteous and fall over themselves to be helpful. We had a blast !

A man was telling his neighbor, "I just bought a new hearing aid.  
It cost me heaps but it's state of the art... it's perfect."
"Really," answered the neighbor , 'What kind is it?'

"Twelve thirty."
