On the afternoon of Monday, May 19th, I waved off On Delay from the dock at Marina Puesta del Sol in northern Nicaragua. Aboard were: Pete, Tony, Renan, a lot of diesel, and a lot of food.
Here they are, ready to go:: Tony, Renan, and Pete.
April 21–22, 2014, Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Our adventure is coming to an end. However, we have sold On Delay to Chris and Heather, who are going to be starting on their own two-year adventure (with five kids on board!) shortly. We met Chris (virtually) over a year ago when he posted some questions about our boat model on a cruisers’ forum. The timing worked out, and we are mid-delivery to San Francisco (see The Long passage home to San Francisco). As part of the sale process, Chris flew to Costa Rica to have the boat surveyed out of the water. This was done on an old-style rail lift.
