'Octopus' Spotted In Carlisle Bay


The Nation is today reporting that Paul Allen's yacht, Octopus, was spotted yesterday in Carlisle Bay in Bridgetown. Too bad he could not moor this 416-foot behemoth up alongside a berth at the nearby Pierhead Marina. Oops, that's still on the drawing boards. He could have tied up at the nearby Bridgetown Port but wary owners and captains of these precious babies usually steer clear of commercial ports and harbors. A single ding could mean a million dollar paint job. Just three days ago this blog lamented the fact that Barbados is woefully behind the market trends in yachting tourism and this sighting underlines that concern.
