from a friend...
looks like some information dispersal will be needed...

I watched about 50% of the boat traffic coming and going past Baron Bliss Light on the 24th totally ignoring the new channel markers. This included c s tenders, water taxis, private boats, fast and slow. One tender leaving the village skirted Bird's Isle, now deeper, and others did not seem to know or care what the red and green markers mean. The channel area seems pretty narrow and fast fully loaded tenders and tour boats seemed mor intent on trying to avoid each other's wakes. Some education for the not so sea fearing among us seems in order.

Sea fearing? or sea faring? A little fear would go along way toward improving the maritime operations in Belize. A training program is definitely in order! Strict enforcement too.
