    Gary,

    The 14th of May looks good as well. I'll give it a go.

    Wait til May 15th when the Moon will set north of straight west so you will have a clear horizon north of the islands.

    Alex,

    Would it be possible to compare an observation of the Moon at 2 * then follow with an observation of the Sun at 2* from the same location and height of eye to perform the time lunar you are suggesting ? Unfortunately I can't perform this experiment for a true sunset/moonset from my location because there are islands in the way :(

    Perhaps there were clouds?
    I am trying to recollect, but cannot remember any instance
    that I've seen a moonset over the sea:-(

    Me too.
