St. Barths rate hike!

I think it is contagious! Just read an article in the January 9, 2009 'Lectronic Latitude 38 (click here). The author says (about St. Barths):
To give you an example of how absurd it's become, as of January 1, we're being charged nearly $900 U.S. a month for the privilege of anchoring our Leopard 45 catamaran. Not for docking or mooring her, mind you, but for anchoring her anywhere around the island. This marks the second year in a row that the rates were jacked up approximately 50% at the height of the season.
Read this issue for more info.

I'd love to see the official rate sheet for St. Barths. Perhaps one of our charter or cruising friends can pass one along?
