SITS is a proposed Island owned non-profit water transit service.
Consisting of 2 barges and 2 small ferries, it would cater to the tourist and Island resident needs, making a multi million dollar profit yearly, which would be redistributed to Contributors and Island needs.
Very rough calculations are:
2 x 800,000 + 2 x 120,000 = 1840000 (1.84 million.)
Round that up to 2,000,000.
4,000 shares at $500 would take care of the initial investment.
