All the crack in our ferry boat as we traveled from San Cruz Island to Isabella Island. This was a result of the Ecuador Navy pilot boat hitting us before we left. A few people got hurt but we left anyway.

We will be heading out to the Marquis Islands on Sunday 4/29/13. It is 3000 miles west of the Galapagos Islands. It hopefully will take less then 25 days. It should be good sailing and fishing, but we will see.

 

Take it easy!
