February 2006 Walkers Cay Update
Well, boys and girls, it's been a while. As for me, I am still in the middle of
completely rebuilding the Funny Feelin Too. Hope to have her back in the water
in April or May. As for Billy Black ( the other Walkers Cay Guide) he has
landed a job running a New 60 ft Hatteras and will be going back to the
Bahamas, based in the Marsh Harbor area. I wish this was a new fishing report
from Walkers but unfortunately it's not. Attached is an artists rendering,
concept drawing of what Walkers may become. I will be the first to say that if
Walkers goes buy the way of this drawing, you can have it. For years many of us
went to Walkers Cay to visit and enjoy Bob Aplanaps little slice of paradise.
For the fishing, diving and of course, dock parties. For the most part we had
the place to our selves and enjoyed every minute of it. If you remember in one
of my last fishing reports, after hurricanes Francis & Jeanie, I said Walkers
as we know it was over. When you look at the attachment you will see what I
was referring to. A reliable source says this will be
a product of "Cay Clubs"
headed by Dave Clark. Some
550 Living units, studio condos and private homes
priced in the $500K to $5 million range. Membership fees @ $50,000.00.
350 wet slips, also with a membership fee in the $50K range. Slips expected to
be in the "several hundred K" range. I do understand that people have to make
money and looking at a Minimum $ 50 Million investment the new owners would
have to have some kind of Condo / Villa / Boat Slip project to sell, just to
recoup some of the investment capital. I never expected this kind of density.
Well, we will just have to wait & see if it all happens. If it does, You can
********FYI****** Walkers is still open for Clearing In country (Customs & Immigrations) and Rosies on Grand Cay Has Fuel, Water, Dockage and some rooms. Also many of our old friends are still on grand to help you in any way they can.
