Am I ever going to get out of here???

The past couple of weeks since being in the Rio have been more on the unproductive side. The time has been more or less evenly split between La Ceiba and Utila.

There have, however, been a couple of jaunts around the islands. The first one was a sail to Cayos Cochinos with Lucia, Cristina, and another eight La Ceiba pals in tow for a weekend. Though winds were light, we were able to sail over from Ceiba. The trip threatened to be cut short because of incoming coldfront. I watched it pretty closely, and it didn't look like the worst of it would pass until well after Monday. So we opted to stick out the whole weekend.

Made it out of the Rio.... sweet....

Finally, something happens as planned and on schedule. In just one week's time, I managed to get Sjelle's boat stripped and sold off. Yeah, there was probably some money left on the table, but with Sjelle in India, there were not a lot of options to go with. I managed to sell alot of the more valuable gear to Luigi and a friend of his, as well as to Bob, who took care of Sjelle's boat after we left the river. The rest of the boat, mainly the hull and its diesel engine, was sold to a local guatemalan welder guy who is quite known to be a major asshole. Nonetheless, he came up with the money at the 11th hour, and a deal was made.

Andiamo Log

The Andiamo is currently sailing in the Western Caribbean, but that's subject to change without notice. By the way, "Andiamo" means "Let's go" in Italian.
