Great to see an organization like ACER exists in AC! I have supported VISAR in the BVI and am happy to support ACER, as we will be engaged in scuba, snorkeling & sailing on our first trip to Belize this February.

I hear that there was another boat accident here on Ambergris Saturday January 23rd around 7pm.

This time near Captain Morgans, possably 4 people injured as reported.
a resort boat and a water taxi involved.

It gets very dark in that area at night. I don't know the details however, I have personally (this week) watched many boats pass by our place at night still without navagational lights.

I wonder when the "Authorities" will start cracking down on this practice. mad

The San Pedro Sun has been on the scene of a boat accident that occurred this evening around 7PM.
Reports are that the accident happened around the Captain Morganís area and involved boats from Island Ferry and Amigos del Mar. According to authorities four people sustained injuries but are in stable condition.
The Belize Port Authority is investigating the accident and The Sun will be posting photos and follow-up information as soon as it becomes available.

I think it's about time for night patrols by the Coast Guard or BPA. If they cannot do it, The Town Board could hire someone to do patrols.
I also have seen many boats still running without lights.
I am not saying that this was the cause of this latest accident, but it seems some people will not learn that they need lights on boats at night untill they have or cause an accident.
I hope the injuries the people sustained in this accident were not too serious.

I saw boats without lights also in December on our visit.

Do the water taxis have marine radios? What happens after a wreck, that is, is there any one place to call to get help from?

The Port Authority boat has picked up its activity and presence in the area, even after dark. I'm seeing them on the water very often since the last big accident.
Its good to see marine radios making a come back. I hear the chatter from many more sources lately. When electricity goes down cel phones go out also, and for a while the boats where trying to use cel phone contact, the towns electricity service is to irregular for this and marine radio is dependent only on the battery of the unit.

the real question to the BPA is how many citations have they written in the last month for no lights at night etc.

Seems they could write 5 a nite no problem
