Bonaire, Underwater Archeology, Shipwrecks and Artifacts, Anchorage of Boca Slagbaai, 1915

Boca Slagbaai is an anchorage used since the seventeenth century. The name “Slag” stands for “Butcher”. It is related with the slaughtering of goats for their skin and later their meat organised by the West Indies Company to supply Curaçao. As a consequence, it may have been also the place of choice for many Privateers’ vessels.
