We are a family of four (Mom, Dad, 11-year-old twin boys) who are riding our bicycles from Alaska to Argentina. Right now we are in Costa Rica and are trying to figure out how we might get across the Darien Gap into Colombia. A friend suggested I post here and see if any of you boaters might have some connections or information we could check out.

Thanks for your help!

Wow I just looked all over your are doing a remarkable thing

If I was ready , i would do this for you. I am a retired art teacher, who bought a boat and now learning to sail.

what you are doing as a family is a chance of a lifetime.

I am impressed with your bead work Nancy, and I took the liberty to post one of your pieces to entice people to explore your others. I realize you are wanting a boat crossing, but your work must not be overlooked....from someone who knows the hours and time you have into these beautiful pieces. Good luck to you all. Bless you.

This is what I commented on in my other must see this ladies work, and all the other beautiful photos of their adventures.
Would look so nice against a tan! Beautiful beadwork!
Thanks so much for the kind words about our journey and my beadwork! I haven't been doing much beading for past year since we are on the road, but I do have a small kit with me! We are now surfing in Costa Rica and will be continuing on our way south in a few days.

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
