Crossed the border this afternoon afte 05.20 departure from Golfito!
At Anchor at uncharted anchorage called Punta Balsa, just inside Panama. Calm, quiet run apart from a whopping Doarado, which has been dispatched by Sol into steaks and is now on the BBQ. No wind, drizzle, and so far all good.
Headed accross Gulf of Chiraqui tomorrow to an island called Parrida, about 44 miles.
Watermaker is working, Generator is working, although noisily with its new huge washing machine pump, but batteries are shot due to over working while generator was down. Five years old so guess thet were due to give up soon.
Love to all, the crew.
