Belize trip 2005: Man o' War Cay

On the way back to the mainland, we stopped for a look at Man o' War Cay, a nesting site for frigate birds and boobies. The boat had twin 150 HP outboards, and one wouldn't start when we were done. Jack reminded me about my statistician's joke, but eventually both motors were going, and we headed back to shore.
