The weather was predictable - setting off in those conditions shows the desperation
Yes it was, and they are of course. Wind was about 9 to 10 knots with 1.6 metre seas. Always a rough go in the Mona passage too. But the port authority wil not allow departures if they consider the weather to be poor or bad conditions.
Of course they weren't paying attention to that.

I don't think the Port Authority regulates illegal immigration in yolos

Not enough jobs for the Dominicans and from what I see of construction, pulgas, fruit sales and Spandex Queens the Haitians are keeping wages from sky rocketing and taking a fair share of some jobs.

Last night another boat with 47 people left from Miches but the motor broke and they had to be rescued. Eight people were sick and four people are in the hospital this morning.

Between Cabrera and Nagua is a small community called Puerto Rico a Pie.
Looks like back in the days this was # 1 departure location for Yolas.
The American Dream, many had die but a lot people made it safe to US Coast.
