Those Bahamians are fun.
They probably took the 55 gal drum from another shipping channel.
In the Caribbean at a swap meet I was trying to sell my last remaining paper charts and I had one of the island we were on.... These two, youngish, fishermen were looking at it, pouring over it, like they had never seen one before. They obviously couldn't afford it, i think i was asking $5 for it, but I couldn't give it to them as they were proud, so I sold it to them for a dollar. And they said they fished there all their lives and had never seen the chart. They carried it round the whole market like it was gold.
It was a magic moment.
