Small world, I also had a great time riding with Banana pickers sharing a ride with them on the island of St. Vincent's in the Grenadines. An island about 90 miles west of Barbados. All their bananas were shipped to Europe.@MooseJaw my father in law ran against Jesse Owens in high school.
I was at the helm of the T/V Patriot State bringing her back to Buzzards Bay, MA after OPSAIL '90.
Crewed as ship's chef, quarantine officer, and gunner on board S/V Sylvina w. Beal (b.1911) from Mystic to Cumana, VZ and back. I had the most fun riding in the back of truck with banana pickers in St. Lucia, and the irony isn't lost, because The Patriot State was a former banana cargo ship.
