Re: Is it time to boycott the Bahamas?

The proposed increase in entry fees supposedly has been dropped.
Apparently the Bahamas took notice of what happened in the Turks & Caicos Is. after the increase to draconian entry (and exit) fees and noted that 'Provo', Cockburn, etc. are now vacant of essentially all foreign recreational watercraft less than mega-yacht size. Not a good thing for economies that depend on tourism, huh?
Its also noted that in the TCI you dont have to land; as if you enter their territorial waters, they'll come out and escort (capture?) you in to pay their fees.
