What repairs could they do??

The terminal is a wooden bus shelter and the runway like a narrow back street with a few feral goats keeping the grass down.

Re: Runway at Stanial Cay, Exumas closed for repairs

It has to be a special kind of disaster for an outisland runway to close. Must be a sink hole.

More remarkable will be how long they take to repair it. I knew a guy who hired locals to pour the slab for his beach house. He thought he was doing them a favor, by having a powered cement mixer imported for them. They refused to use it. They mix by hand in a wooden box. No need to rush, mahn.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Estimates are 2 months to repair, but govt contract so who knows?
Reason for closure is runway surface declared unsafe by inspector.
Govt team in Stanial and Black Point yesterday talking about establishing a ferry between the two communities.
Small boat traffic definately increased between the two now.
