We are podcasting from Panama! The Slow Boat sailed from Providencia, Colombia to Colon, Panama, the entrance to the Panama canal about 250 miles on the 4th multiple night passage since leaving New Orleans on April 29. Get details of the engine blowout 45 miles from Panama and how the crew of the Slow Boat came into port under their own power.
This week’s guest is Dominique Truelove of the S/V SeaWolf Sailing and the YouTube channel of the same name. The SV Sea Wolf crew sailed with dog Bear to the Bahamas, Cuba, Honduras, Colombia and Panama before returning to the USA. Next season they’ll be sailing with their new born son. They literally bought a boat and went cruising immediately. Dominique tells about the customs challenges of sailing with a dog, and how they survived a broken forestay in the remote far southern part of the Bahamas.
There are many ways to support the podcast in addition to being a patron.
