Well, due to the silting in of the Silver Cove inlet, caused by Hurricane Matthew, many deeper draft boats, leave Ocean Reef Yacht Club, on a high tide, and move over to Lucaya, to anchor till morning, when they leave. Deeper water in that channel, at all times of the tide.
So, I decided to do the same, and anchored to the east of the GBYC, and not in anyones way. Sitting there, a pontoon boat comes out, and the Bahamian captain asks me, “what are your intentions”. So, I asked back, what do you mean, “what are my intentions”? He then proceeded to tell me that I could not anchor in front of the marina….I have never had this happen to me before…and I was just wondering if anyone else has run into this situation in Lucaya, Grand Bahama.
I did explain that I would be leaving in the morning, early, but that did not make any difference to him.
