4. Key West to Panama Recap With Photos #1 February 9, 2015 ZekeTheSailor 5 Comments Peaceful crossing of Gulf Stream between Key West and Cuba Much is said about the old cars in Havana. Check out the one on the front of this boat in Marina Heminway! Old Havana Havana Hemingway at here. So did we. Radio for rally check-in, for weather, and especially now for (very slow) email. Fresh catch of the day. Sometimes in the night, flying fish make a wrong turn; this one ended up on our dinghy. Visiters! Disabled ship! Second ship standing by in the distance, mostly to relay radio messages. Approaching Porvenir in San Blas Islands. Round thing in foreground is a drifter buoy that we will be deploying in the Pacific. At anchor at Porvenir. Included in photo is customs/immigration office, airport, and hotel. Also our new BPO friends Maggie (just in front of our daggerboard) and Coconut Woman (in front of Maggie). Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

It was great fun to look at your photos this morning as I sit at home watching another snowstorm that has shut down most of Boston. Here’s from boston.com:
“With more than 60 inches of snow (and climbing), Boston reached a new record for snowfall over a 30-day period in just the past 17 days. The new total surpassed that of the famed Blizzard of 1978. The record for 40-day snowfall, at 66.7 inches, is expected to be passed later Monday.”

What is the name of the marina in Colon?
Sent from my iPhone
Marina “in” Colon (really an hour’s bumpy ride away) is Shelter Bay. Very nice facility (photo will probably be coming), but it is difficult to do anything here because it is horrendously hot. The trade winds don’t seem to make it into the “shelter.” But we have very little time here. Mostly need a huge provisioning trip, and a few boat tasks. Hoping to transit the Canal on Saturday, but we don’t have a firm date yet.
