Had no Internet yesterday to give an update. We were able to leave by noon after helping the other boat that ran aground and damaged his rudder.
I went over and helped him remove his very bent rudder. It was bent to 30 degrees in two places! He made some calls back at his last marina. They had another boat coming to the island who could watch the boat while he took his rudder ashore to get it repaired.
So he told us it was fine if we left. We left by noon, but only made about 25 miles due to currents and lack of wind.
