The marker in the picture is the one used in the French islands to demarcate marine areas. I hope that the 26 markers are going to be navigation aids for reef entrances and perhaps a couple more cardinal danger marks and not national park boundary markers!

That said, knowing how public projects in the BVI work, those $327K might get us 4 channels markers in Cane Garden Bay and they might perhaps be (a) in the right places and (b) outlast the hurricane season.

For that money $12.5k a piece these are not big cans like the picture but channel markers to the smaller anchorages. Still much needed.

The company sounds shady.
