See this article at www.bviplatinum.com/news.php?articleId=1469583798

Hubert O'Neal is proposing turning Anegada into a gigantic transshipment port. He came over to Anegada in early July for a "town meeting" where he pitched his idea. Most of the people at the meeting thought it was a joke and actually laughed at O'Neal.

The article says that residents were "receptive". That is not exactly true. Most opposed the idea, and only a few seemed to be in favor of it.

If implemented, this would destroy Anegada as we know it today.

He needs to take a ride out over the east end on BVIPirate Air and point out where exactly he'd bring in a huge container ship. No open water there without tearing out a bunch of reef. I love hearing all these ideas! Never fails to amuse!!

Dumb idea - but entertaining to watch.....where do these people come up with this stuff? Follow the money, I guess.

Of course the BVI doesn't have nearly enough money to pull this off.
However, there's probably enough money for some of O'Neal's buddies to study it for a while until they figure out it's not financially feasible. hairy doh tonguea

And that is exactly what will probably happen. Just one more way to take the public's money.
