Its Friday: let's talk RUM

8 days until we start our sailboat charter with out of Saint Vincent.

Very mission critical question here: how due the provisioning prices* compare to the prices for RUM in Saint Vincent? Also, we will be flying through SJU if its cheaper to pick up rum/vodka there.

Thanks in advance

*Mount Gay $24EC
Sunset $17 EC

Pardon my ignorance, but what's an "EC"? I do know that rum is pretty cheap in San Juan, especially in dutyfree but not sure about prices. Cruzan rum costs about $7-8 dollars there and $12-14 not incl. tax at home in Connecticut.

I think it's Eastern Caribbean currency. The formula to convert is divide by three and add 10% of that number to get USD.

EC Eastern Caribbean dollar $1.00 US = $2.68 EC can vary by a cent or two.
