We're here in the Bahamas and the helicopters buzzing us are Drug Enforcement Agency guys from the USA working in conjunction with the Bahamian Defence Force. They photograph boats in marinas, and fly low looking for shallow-water submarines. So far, they've caught 10 of these subs, built in South America, running up the Bahamian chain hoping to blend in with the cruiser yachts and drop their drugs off Florida.

We are winding down our winter cruise, heading north and slowing getting into the going-home mode. 10 locks in 5 hours sounds laborious! Good for you.
