... reduction in tourists! That pretty much dried up the tourism industry. It has been on a slow increase the last couple of years. Because of this situation, it has been over twenty-five years since a new boat has been built!!

I guess I’m making it all sound very negative, but we felt pretty safe here and I would recommend it to others. We felt a lot safer here than in many ...
