We are told by an ancient Guna man of a bushwalk that follows a pipe that leads to a mystical magical lake where the Guna's pipe their fresh water from. I get a first hand look at how Gunas do repairs on this pipe and I like what I see. Nothing but quality here too. We visit a place called East Cocos Banderos and I visit the remains of a wreck and come face to face with a barracuda. On coming back we meet my second favourite bird, a booby bird, which doesn't really seem to be scared at all of humans. And no I don't like the bird because of its name. A huge mass of sargasm comes to surround us so before it starts stinking we make our getaway and head to West Cocos Banderos and have a late afternoon BBQ of snapper.

Here's a surprise, our dinghy blows a seem and captain bodge needs to come up with some dodgy rescue. We go to a local market to try and find some PVC glue and a water pump but we have no luck although I run in to a cousin of mine. Margarida takes a test drive of an underwater scooter and I can't help but admire the water and bubbles. I see to the water pump and get it going again by stripping parts from another broken pump and we take a look at Nargana, one of the main towns in Guna Yala where we can stock up on some fruit and veges.

Our water pump died so we find a well on one of the islands to wash up and clean ourselves. The water has a bit of a taste to it but we dont care so I grab a 100 litres so we can live another week or so on the boat. Margarida is spearing more fish and catches us all dinner as well as getting us some coconuts for a treat. We also rig up a slackline. We thought slacklining would be easy but we are a bit hopeless so we make it look hard. Give it thumbs a up if you liked this episode!

Margarida is keen to learn to spear so I rig a gun for a her and give her a lesson. She ends up impressing me no end with her breath hold and her relaxed unhurried stalking on the bottom. End result, she spears her very first fish. We test out our new dodgy smoker to smoke the fish and surprisingly it works a treat. The day ends at sunset with Margarida taking a nudey bath at the back of the boat with a 3 meter crocodile swimming close by. Want more?

Margarida is back and we go sailing to explore some of the most beautiful places that the southwestern Caribbean has to offer. Margarida gets seasick on the journey but she soldiers on because she is a tough old trooper. We show off our new Tohatsu 9.8 that was generously bought for us by our wonderful patron Bob. Top stuff BoB. And we get in the groove of enjoying all the pleasures that the reefs and islands provide. Mmmmm crab. Give it thumbs a up if you liked this episode!

More boat fixes. Likely to be the most boring video we have ever done so save this for when you need some zzzzzzzzzzzzz in a difficult situation, like if you need to get to sleep before an exam and you are too worried. Just turn on this video and you will be out within 2 minutes. Insomniacs, I have your problem solved etc etc We look at the mast and the dropped spreader. We look at the engine overheating problem completely. We look at the reason why water got into the fuel and we solve the front locker flooding problem. Its all good now, well mostly....lets face it...unlikely Give it thumbs a up if you liked this episode!

We continue the saga of Plukky, Dougy and Adam, our dynamic intrepid trio, sailing to Panama. We have a flooded front cabin, an engine that keeps overheating and very flat batteries forcing us to steer whenever possible. Will they be able to sail in through the channels in the reef without their problematic Yanmar and get to the safe anchorage of Linton Bay, Panama or will they be dashed upon the reef and be fish food? The final chapter is here and now. Give it thumbs a up if you liked this episode! Get your Sailing Into Freedom Crew T-shirt: https://teespring.com/stores/sailing-into-freedom Want more?

Sorry for losing a week, as you may know San Blas its not know for having much phone service aka internet. We hope this video makes it for the lost week. The trip to Panama was expected to be all plain sailing. Does that sound right? OF course not. We broke and fixed the autopilot, the motor couldn't be run for more than 10 minutes because it kept on overheating, we flooded the front cabin and our batteries almost were drained flat. Yep, sounds right. But the sailing was great which made up for all the problems down below. We also give a run down about the pirate situation around Honduras and Nicaragua and the Gordo Banks and offer alternative solutions about dealing with pirates. These may or may not be good ideas. We learn more about the crew and what Plukky is made of. Give it thumbs a up if you liked this episode!

Plukky, Dougy and Adam strike east in light conditions and get to Roatan (Bay Islands, Honduras), a magical diver's paradise. With water visibility in the hundreds of feet, plentiful fishes because of the marine park and the beautiful coral, they enjoy a short stay in this tropical paradise.

Sorry for losing a week, as you may know San Blas its not know for having much phone service aka internet. We hope this video makes it for the lost week. Margarida has gone for family reasons and I find 2 patreons to come and help me sail to Panama. Dougy is a Canadian who has raced very small boats but Adam is new to the game and wishes to know what it is all about. We leave the beautiful Rio going again through the magnificent gorges and check out of Livingston, at the mouth of the Rio Dulce. But getting across the bar is another story with us standing a very good chance of not making it due to our 6 feet 4 inch draft. Before we leave the Rio, I give some tips to cruisers who may wish to visit Rio Dulce to make it a little easier. Give it thumbs a up if you liked this episode!

Plukky always had a thing for volcanos and off course we couldn’t say no to the toughest volcano hike in Guatemala. At 3976 metres in height Acatenango is the 3rd biggest volcano in Guatemala.

After exploring Antigua we decide to pay a visit to the largest indigenous market in Central America -Chichicastenango. This famous town is the ideal setting to admire the amazing living of the Mayan culture, abounding in colour, mysticism and a great diversity of products. Not yet tired of being a tourist we head to Lake Atitlan where we night hike to a peak to see the sunrise over the lake and overlook the 3 impressive volcanos that surround the lake.
