Monkey Island is known as that because in olden days when there was no way of getting weather reports/faxes etc, The only way to know bad weather was by having monkeys on top of the bridge. Animals are more perceptive to weather changes than humans and the monkeys would get agitated when bad weather was coming thereby warning the sailors of the impending danger. So the deck above the navigation bridge came to be known as monkey island. In third world countries the practice is still prevelant for small country crafts etc.
