Hmmm, good catch, I didn't notice that on my first read...

Looks like I'm still good to go @ $150, but you're right, this certainly represents a change to $300 for virtually everybody who cruises the Bahamas... I'm generally the smallest boat pretty much everywhere I go over there, it is extremely rare when I come across other boats smaller than mine...
