I really don't see it being a big deal if a few things were in place. 1. 4-stroke only 2. governor's limiting speed to 30mph. 3. Guided tours only

If these requirements were in place, you likely wouldn't even notice them.

I think a bounty on them sounds like a good idea. Or they might make nice Mooring balls.

Well one things for sure VISAR will need more boats and Peebles more rooms.
Or we can all stay away from the BVI for a year in protest.
If the charter companies lost even half the business the Taxis, and restaurants would be screaming.

Even if regulated there wouldn't be any enforcement of the law except for maybe 1 day every 3 months
