Still windy and we are staying, plus thanks to Dan

It has been a hectic few weeks. We had the issue with the exoneration paperwork and the National Car Reantal overcharge and then need for a survey for new insurance.

Varnish and condo time !

The cabin sole has been beginning to show some real wear and the companionway door was looking like it should have used a lot more sun screen, so it was time to get ready to varnish.

Mess -> hotel stay

Now that we know we are going to stay here in Papagayo Marina for the summer we went to work on some chores.

We got the exoneration paperwork !

Yes, it is April Fools' Day, but we don't think it is a joke.

No bad faith contract needed ?

We finally got our misappropriated Marina Papagayo National Car Rental refund. That only took almost a month and a lot of reminders and an angry complaint letter. Talk about substandard service !

Cultural whiplash

This is another surprising turn of events. We're almost getting whiplash !

No bad faith contract needed ?

We would obviously not recommend that anyone rents a car through Marina Papagayo National Car Rental.

We still don't have the exoneration contract that we should have had weeks ago and which is costing us $900 for a two-year temporary import permit. At least we have now been verbally assured that the contract does not obligate us to stay here two years or break a contract if we leave earlier.

Of course, if we don't get the contract in the next week or so it is all immaterial as we will have no option to leave for Bahia del Sol no matter what. If we have to leave because of the agent's inability to deliver I'm sure we will still be charged for his "effort".

What a mess !

Speaking of messes the local flying varmints leave it on any boat left unattended for any length of time.
