Fake Friend

you’ve noticed by now that all the more southerly Islands have colorful tenders owned and operated by the local men. While they’re known as “boat boys”, and some of them are young, most are grown men who make a living with their boats. In Salt Whistle Bay, Yellow Man is a white man with dreadlocks and a very native accent, which leads us to believe he was raised here and that’s what his boat is named. My Desire delivers fresh bread in the mornings, though we typically buy our baguettes from Yellow Man (as well as ice). Roots is another of the boat names we’ve seen here, as well as Velocity-Lordog (go figure), Most Ras and One Love (obviously a reference to the Rastafarian beliefs). You saw the photo of the boat named Skylark in Bequia. Equal Rights was Captain Bob’s boat in Soufriere, St. Lucia. But this one has been our favorite. Fake Friend doesn’t seem to be a very inviting name if he’s selling his goods to the cruisers, but we don’t know the story of where the name comes from.
