Golfito Ship Information

10 May 2019 | Golfito, Costa Rica
George Stonecliffe
We are assigned to MV Kraszewski, a 200+ meter ship that has called on Golfito several times before. It's MMSI number is 209355000. The ship position can be determined by watching the location of the MMSI number. This ship has four loading cranes. It will be unloading two boats and loading three boats including 'Julia Max' and 'Sequoia'. Depending on the arrival time of day, if early, all five boats may be unloaded and loaded in one day. Meanwhile boat preparation goes on: dinghy stowed on board, wind generator blades stowed below and generator tied down, SSB antenna disconnected from the backstay (which needs to be released at loading time), mizzen sail removed and stowed, and more goes on over the next few days. The weather is hot and humid, and heavy rain falls every day about 1700 with occasional lightening and thunder displays. We are grateful to have a portable air conditioning unit which we can run while plugged in to 30 amp service. Also we continue to enjoy DVD movies on our laptop while plugged in.
