Brandilee, I think you must have been with a different Omar (the fisherman guy).
The Omar I met, and I'm pretty sure the same one SeaJay met, is very young, only about 20 years old, tall for a Belizean and skinny as a stick and I'm also reasonably sure that he doesn't have a boat. He's also a woodcarver.
But as someone else said, (maybe it was SeaJay) we've probably all met some like "Omar" in Belize.
One of the things that I liked about the "Omar" that I met, was he seemed to have this spiritual side. He was really into being free to do what he wanted when he wanted to do it too. And the things that he wanted to be free to do, seemed to be things like taking a long run up the coast, or going down the coast to meditate on the beach.
