Default St Maarten Euros Winair

Two items about St Maarten from The Daily Herald.

1) Quite a few merchants on the Dutch side now accept euros, but not at a
very attractive rate "since they have to go to a bank on the French side to
convert them to dollars". More confirmation that the de facto currency of
the Dutch side is the US dollar.

2) Winair, which connects St Maarten with Saba, Statia, St Barths, etc., is
having its usual financial problems. One of their Twin Otters is nearing
end-of-life and will not be replaced. That will leave them with two Twin
Otters and two small Islanders as their total fleet.
