One of the local musical instruments in the Bahamas is a crosscut saw! They play "Rake & Scrape" music and accompany it by scraping a screwdriver across the teeth of the saw with a screwdriver while bending the saw. Here in marsh harbor there are many bars that have music, live bands, and food. Most of the islands here have at least one or two hangouts where cruisers all get together and tell each outher about thier ordeals and adventures. The difference between an ordeal and an adventure is time, when stressful things are happening to you and your boat they are an ordeal, but the next day or week when you are sitting in a bar or pub they turn out to be an adventure. We heard a great talk about this in Annapolis by Bob Bitchen from Lattitudes and Attitudes Magazine. We are going to go to one of the more popular hangouts Nippers, next week to see a concert by "The Barefoot Man".http://www.nippersbar.com/barefootman.html This is a very popular concert and the Island's population realy grows duirng the concert.
