Back in the Pacific Northwest 2020

While waiting out the Corona Virus 19, we are back home in Portland, Oregon. We have just finished (March 2020) repainting and servicing boat systems after our two-year, 15,000 mile tour of North America.

Back at 'Julia Max' in Fish Hook Marina, we have seen two other yacht carrying vessels come and go from Golfito. Ours with Seven Stars Transport is currently scheduled to come to Golfito May 19th. No one is holding their breath. Our vessel is still in the USVI as of Tuesday morning, May 14. At 13.5 knots vessel speed, it has to travel over a thousand miles to the Panama Canal, go through the Canal, possibly 'bunker' (meaning re-fuel), and travel 24 hours to Golfito. We are checking out airplane flights from Golfito through to Portland, Oregon. Meanwhile today we had our dinghy fiberglass RIB bottom repaired (it was holed in Puerto Armuelles, Panama), have repainted the hull, and re-glued a six-inch portion of the RIB and transom. It should be much better for the Pacific Northwest.
