That Delightful Ramshackle Quality

There’s lots to like about the Caribbean. The sun is hot, the native beers are cold, and the people are warm and friendly.

But one of the things I like the most is the ramshackle, what-the-hell approach to life that seems to be found throughout the islands. Consider this colorful derelict boat that looks like it met the same fate as the SS Minnow. It appears to have been at this location forever — and the location is a prime spot of waterfront right next to a hotel.

Well . . . why the hell not? It’s as good a place as any to store a boat that is falling apart. Say, do you know if that beachfront place has Banks on ice?
