Compared with the USA you can say that in spades. But that doesnt mean theres tooooo little in the Caribbean. It more likely means theres quite a LOT in the USA!

I 'spose folks wanna get their moneys worth for the $200 VHF from Westmarine. They do that.

(and you'd think the Coast Guard paid more for theirs! Cant keep them off it. And where did they learn to talk that fast... can you guys understand them? I canna!)
