    It’s impressive to me how many from the USA were involved. Captain Don, Bruce, building Flamingo International and Cargill Salt Works, while most of the tourists are Dutch.

    Perhaps we should petition Bonaire/STINAPA to rename The Lake back to 'Bowker Lake' .

    I was fortunate to stay at Caribe inn and met and talked with Bruce several times. He was a genius with my Scubapro regs He spent 30 minutes tuning one up for me one afternoon but refused to charge me. I joked that he would go broke with that business model! Over time, I witnessed many examples of outstanding customer service the Bowker way. Rest in Peace Bruce.
