DUHHHHH ............... who ever checks the cargo or crew & passengers aboard mail boats???? ......... They come and go, from port to port, with no oversight by the RBPF or RBDF.

These poor innocent traders quietly going about their inter-island business, suddenly accosted and arrested by the jack-booted gendarmerie. Don't these inquisitors know that in most, so called "civilized societies", a little pot is now legal. ---- Oops, sorry, I forgot we are not one of those societies----- silly me.

actually they do check the boats for immigration violations and look for drugs too. not everyday, but they do.

the mailboat helps a lot of people for low cost freight and transportation.

to send a single envelope on bahamasair is 23.00 plus vat. on the mail boat is 3 dollars plus vat.

My friend far be it for me to disagree with your post. However not a month passes when I take the mail to to Harbour Island, Governors, George Town, etc. Never once in all these years Did the authorities ever check the boat I was on. I ride the Current Pride weekly, the only passengers are Haitians. _ Are there any checks by the Gestapo ----- never. So actually you are incorrect.

ondrape ??? I think you must fit either of your last two categories. The boat is not named because its the " Marie Celeste".; or was it the Black Pearl?
