Oceanus bunked on the Robert Grey, a 1936 12-passenger + crew charter vessel 120ft long and 26ft across. Needless to say, there were about three times as many people on the ship at any given time.

There were also a couple of sailboats and other boats attached to the massive Robert Gray.

The Aurora was anchored at the now closed Herman & Helen's Marina, straight East of Mandeville tip.




3 houseboats with a bit of a remote jungle atmosphere plus a floating tropical island and the Floating Delorean.
