Dulcita’s Naming Ceremony
14 November 2017 | Rio Dulce, Guatemala

Dulcita now sports custom outboard & gas tank covers, a false floor, new painter & towlines. We still have seat cushions & emergency oars to install and non-skid to apply, nonetheless, it’s time for her official naming ceremony because the local guy, Andy’s Stickers, who made her name stickers (Q.150) installs them this morning.
The only bubbly beverage onboard is Gallo (local beer) so that’s what we’ll use.
Mid-day we christen her: a bouquet of local flowers & greenery is placed on her bow to ensure safe returns, we pour a half a can of Gallo over the bow as a offering to the sea & wind deities, and with Cheers! she’s officially named.
