Well after talking to the weather man Chris, it is not looking good to leave for Panama, for at least another ten days or so.
There is very unsettled weather all around, with gale force winds, big seas and a lot of rain...great.
The biggest issue is we have to sail around Columbia, and it's really bad weather there at the best of times.

We are thinking of leaving to sail down to the ABCs islands, this should take 3 to 4 days, and we will be a lot closer to Panama, and may just get a good weather window, to sail across.

We are in contact with Chris daily as he is trying to get us out of here.

So with that plan in mind, this boat has been a hive of activity with me organising everything down below doing some cooking, packing stuff away, and The Captain, racing around getting bits and pieces and fixing all the odd jobs on deck.
Oh and all the port holes have had the seals replaced put back on tested and no more leaks from them...yay

All is going well then he notices another shroud that looks iffy...far out here we go again.

So that needs looking into, the fridge still needs looking into, but the boat is shining down below, some extra food cooked ready to be frozen, a lot of jobs on deck crossed off the list, and on and on it goes.
Will we be ready to leave in a day or two? We sure hope so.

Well tomorrow is anther day.
