Ugly South African Catamaran

This must be the ugliest catamaran we have spotted in Caribbean Waters. All angles and no curvature. The sailors that are attracted to a boat like this are more into floating condos, and counting berths. Part of the selling price should include repatriation back to South Africa. There is already a huge third generation fleet of plastic boats in the Caribbean. Just imagine 20 years from now how littered our shorelines will be. This pig does not benefit from the red paddle board lipstick. image © ocean trader

What Are We Waiting For? Legalize It!

Youth Man, Ocean TraderOur lackluster Caribbean governance is missing the boat (again). Governor, where are your steering commitees and industrial incentives for local cultivators and manufacturers? How about researching the known ganja extracts that will surely be used to aleviate pain or induce pleasure. Do we know what double-blinded ganja clinical trials are already planned? Are we even thinking about getting to the front of the line for what will surely be a global mega industry? Master, that government clown suit and a flag pin only confirms you have little, or no imagination.

The Caribbean is already known for its marijuana varietals. This is a trade we should be forging ahead with instead of flogging worn schemes like a mothballed refinery, or giving away our revenue to offshore distillers. I still think we will need a woman to put things right after a few more years of  stifled imagination and buffoonery. Meanwhile our brethren are running out of stock in Colorado, or resigned to smoking that hydroponic killer stick. We have plenty sunshine in these latitudes. Acreage for cali weed will one day be more valuable than land squandered on condo development. There might not be enough retail space on Main Street once this ship sails! image © nkosi photography

Jack Iron Bay And The Ganja Pirates

Jack Iron Bay

This tranquil beach was once a popular landing spot in the Ganja trade. The real Pirates of the Caribbean don’t look like hairdressers with phony eye patches. One famous runner was reputed to off-load a case of Jack Iron rum as a spif to the big buyers. Yes Mon! Monkey know which tree to climb. image © ocean trader
