West End, Old Bahamas Bay in the Bahamas closed???

We were in Georgetown Exuma a couple of weeks ago and ran into a cruiser that told us the whole operation was closed due to a business dispute.

The story we heard, some group appeared and filed a claim of ownership against the current operators. Court decided in favor of the claimants and they closed everything down pending decision on how they will proceed.

Just called and spoke with the marina manager who confirmed the closure but she had no details nor information on how or when things will change. She did tell me the customs office at the dock is still open and boats can tie up along the sea wall to clear in, space permitting. She suggested calling in advance if you have plans to visit West End for status.

I heard it was brothers having a spat. Was headed there last week but diverted when conditions worsened so can't help you.

Someone turned up a link to an article on the problem. Seems like warring developers with complications from condo owners and the Bahamian government to further confuse matters.
