Buoy Lights are placed
After fixing them to a (hopefully) theft-proof mounting, Tom, the help of Brandon (from Fido’s) placed the 2 Jim Buoy lights donated by The Ma lo ha Development, a venture of Vernon and Francis Wilson. These are the red and green lights used for better direction of boat traffic at the mouth of Boca del Rio. The lights run for about 1.5 yrs on a single battery, at which time the battery can be replaced. There have been several expressions of concern posted on the Ambergris Caye Message Board that the “no-wake” zone PVC pipes do not have lights, and many have been damaged. The Chamber would gladly accept further donations of these lights to increase the safety in the waters around the Caye.
