The Abacos: Man O’ War

A small Island off Great Abaco Island which is full of charm and beautiful scenery.  Man-O-War is famed for the Albury name and boat building, they’re known throughout the entire Bahamas and have been building boats and sail making for almost 200 years.  Since so many boats are going to power, the need for sail making is not what it used to be; now the sail shop makes souvenirs with the sail cloth. You can get anything from a toiletries kit, a pocket book, book or duffel bag in a variety of colors and patterns. You can add whatever color strap you want at whatever length suits you. The only place in the world you can get one of these treasures is at Albury's Sail Shop, as they do not import or sell anywhere else.

Look for Lola's bread store and get one of her Cinnamon Fools or a loaf of Bahamian or Banana Bread.  You can also find her buzzing up and down Bay Street selling from her golf cart.

Man O’ War, in many ways is untouched by today’s modern hustle and bustle and has maintained its integrity and unique character mainly due to a strong religious sense of bonding that holds the community together. They live differently from the outside world and have a total ban on alcohol sales on the island, so bring your own!

Dear David & Jackie,

We are writing to thank you for such an amazing vacation.  This trip was so much more than just a vacation; it was an adventure we’ll never forget.  Who knew that the Bahamas had so much to offer, from the swimming pigs in Big Major to the Iguanas at Allen’s cay and everything in between?  Conch diving, learning how to clean and prepare conch salad and conch chowder; everyday offered a new experience.  Our personal favorite was catching the 200lb marlin while simply trolling.  Being that this wasn’t a fishing charter, it was a very welcomed bonus.  We want to thank you for your hospitality, for making us feel like family and the gift of a new friendship.   We would definitely recommend Fat Bottom Girl Charters to anyone considering this type of vacation.   Save a spot for us next year!
