Biggus, I normally see Derrick on the weekends, he also races model boats, but we are good friends, if u want me say hey to him i will..the cave is still open at grotto bay, but i haven't been there for yrs..it's surprzing the things that we take for granted when they're at your door step..

offshore.. with limited space the land holds it's value pretty good..i believe international buyers have to purchases houses 3mill and up .. and since the dollar is on par with the USA..so it's no push over..

lets make some comparisons..lol a carton of orange juice $6.. a rav4 2005 $52000 on the road..the Z4BMW 140K 2 seater .. a house with 2 car parking maybe 1/4acre 1mill..but the wages i guess makes up for it..construction guru's going rate is $300 a sq foot..marine mechanics r $90 per hr

had guy on a talk show the other day who is unemployed says he's not working for $15 per hr lol.. but i believe min. wage is like 10-12 dollars..and since we have international business such as re insurance companies, it keeps the market thrieving..

before international business our gross domestic product was based off of tourism which was probally half the economy, but now 80% of the GDP is international business..so i guess if your in the field the $$ r rolling....

Man i chose the wrong profession..lol

after all that said..a good day of boating..Priceless :-)

Biggus, I was talking to a couple of my mates d other day, and you're correct..that is Derreck Simons in the Freeze Frame in the 24ft skater in Key West..Apparently he had a lap or so to go to win the worlds, before he stuff it..
