    Hi Archie Needed fuel reply to your response your response is not correct. can you please alter we did not enter the bedroom. we came up to the lodge which was wide open and called out many times to see if someone was around to get information on fuel as the signs indicated that no fuel available on weekends which we did not know being new visitors to the island. as we could not get a response we made a decision (a poor one we now see) to see if someone was around, went around the corner and called through the open door. it would have been great to know that as fuel is not available except by special appointment where else it could be obtained on the water. regards Steven Cooper
