ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- With this being a holiday weekend, a large number of persons gathered at the Road Town Jetty to head over to Anegada today, October 15, 2021, but many were nearly left stranded due to the boat not having the capacity to take everyone.

The weekend for approximately 50 persons; however, were saved by Premier and Minister of Finance Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1) who made his way to the ferry dock on being informed of the situation.

According to reports reaching our newsroom, the Smith's Ferry came down from to Anegada with approximately 50 persons this morning but about double that amount were heading to Anegada this afternoon.

"We have it worked out," Hon Fahie commented to JTV News, adding that there was an option A and an option B.

He expressed gratitude to Smith's Ferry, who he said had been "more than accomodating and helpful to get it worked out."

All is well that ends well, as a ferry with a large capacity was sought and around 4:45pm the large number of persons comfortably set off for the outer island of Anegada.

    1. Why is this news?
    2. Why didn't Smith's Ferry just negotiate with another ferry company?
    3. Why don't local ferries institute a booking system for local travel to Anegada? It would assist with gauging movements. I'm sure this isn't the first time and won't be the last

    Stop coddling these darned ferries and giving them subsidies. Let free enterprise reign and watch everything go smoothly. Daily trips. Larger vessels. Anegada is a much bigger market and economy than it used to be 10 years ago thanks to the Lobster Festival.

    This type of thing is what makes the VI special. What other democracy can the people get in touch with their representatives at a moment’s notice????

    None a them. And that’s what they want to call corruption. Politicians who are reachable and capable of active leadership.

      It’s true that we can reach the reps easy but it’s because of that there is no structure or rules follow that corruption can grow. Like it has here. Not just small favors. Serious stuff like drugs and big money. That the problem.
