Gas vs. Diesel (are we crazy)?

Hey Bob/808, From my experience,the availability of diesel or gas isn''t a problem in the Keys.Getting to the marinas sometimes is.Besides the state parks,it seems that in the Keys,the rich pricks own everything.The marinas that have easy access are private,and the ones that you need to be part sailor,and part sand crab to get to are the public ones.Storing extra fuel on board is definately a necessity.In the Bahamas,the marinas all have easy access. They want to make sure that you''ll able to reach their pumps and plunk down a big wad of cash that all us Americans carry.But as a friend of mine use to say,"Poor folks,have poor ways." I guess we all develop our own ;^)
