Very true. In fact, when we were in the Tortugas, we went to trade liquor for fish at a group of Cuban Fishing boats. They wanted to give us Barracuda (we refused) and they had a lot of it. Got Tuna instead. THey took them fresh and filleted them for us... more than we could eat. In return, we gave them a half of a fifth of Jack Daniels. THe Cubans thought they got the better deal. I suspect Jack Daniels is hard to come by down there.

We also ended up (after the deal was made) bringing back a bunch of toys to the boats for their kids which they heartily accepted. The Cubans are good people and those kinds of things really help them out (in my opinion).
