I once spent the better part of a day lying to in a decent beam sea just offshore of Montego Bay in a mid-70's 40' Viking while Captain Neville, our irritable Jamaican host, tried in vain to reattach a corroded exhaust manifold with duct tape. I wouldn't recommend it.
My sister and her family got hoodwinked into taking a vacation there. All the pictures looked so magnificent. And inside the resort it was. But outside the resort was....well not worth doing at best and flat unsafe in reality.
