Hi bluemuffin78 - nice place to be bobbing about on the blue seas! I found this from the Bahamian Government site:
Long Cay, once known as Fortune Island, is located on the southwestern side of Crooked Island. Albert Town, its main settlement, is now sparsely populated though it was once a prosperous little town. It was engaged in the sponge and salt industries and also served as a port from which stevedores were engaged to serve on the German, American
and Dutch boats which then travelled to South America and the Caribbean.
