With the economy in the dumper I doubt very much that Bakers Bay will succeed. Last winter, except for the 'cruisers', the Abacos were relatively empty, and emptied further after May 1 when all the prices increased in anticipation of the 'sport fishing fleets' to roll in - and didnt happen.
West End (Old Bahama Bay Marina) was a ghost town after May 1st ... much of the staff laid off.
Spanish Cay ... totally empty with not a boat in any slip before the end of April.
Treasure Cay ... virtually empty, unless a front came through and the 'cruisers' were there hiding in the harbor.

Green Turtle & Hopetown ... always filled because they have good 'value'.
