Puerto Aventuras to Roatan
Yesterday was a 250 mile run from Puerto Aventuras to Roatan.
We left at first light and ran 28 knots in nice seas, it got a little bumpy 80 miles out we had to slow down, but we were back up to 28 knots when we came into Roatan.
Things are a little different here. I hailed the marina for 10 minutes with no response.
I finally called the guy and he said the radio was off.
I asked for his lat and lon and he had no idea.
He asked me if I could see a small jet flying over and I said yes, so he told me that the marina was just under the plane. We found it, and of course, it was not charted but the dockmaster swore there was plenty water and he was right.
We met DirtyE (drunk and shoeless) when he pulled up to the slip on a water taxi.
The local customs guy, Beatman, was great. He showed up and took care of everything and even set up a diesel deliver the next day at $3.10 a gallon.
We are staying at Infinity Bay Resort, which is gorgeous.
Roatan is just how you want the islands to be. Blue water, everyone is friendly and speaks english, and there are 100's of Gilligan's Island style bars 50 feet from the water.
Tomorrow is our biggest run of the trip so far. 650 miles in 3 days with an overnighter and a fuel stop.

Way to go. I love reading this. I fish with Sandy in Summerland Key and love Henriques yachts. Your story is fantastic. If you could post distance traveled to date and fuel consumed I would be very interested.Those C-12s are super engines.

One picture confused me for a moment ,then I remembered same thing happened before to hot plate ,I was not on board ,delivery captain fixed guess not a permanent fix . My favorite saying is a boat is like a truck when you get where you are going look and see what is broken not if something is broken
