2) WEEKLY LINE CALLS  

LINE

These short and informative WEEKLY Monday live LINE Panama Posse calls are designed to hear you and your progress and provide a friendly voice and quick answers to your questions 

  • vessel emergencies
  • weather along the route
  • logistics
  • long term planning
  • general announcements  

Your time is precious so these calls  are designed to be brief.  The warm up portion of the calls start with general check in’s , follow up’s to provide a better understanding of what to expect with current changes at ports/areas , reports of storm damages and ongoing bureaucracy changes in countries followed by short general updates.  

Join the PANAMA POSSE for the LIVE LINE CALL this and every Monday 
until June’ 24 and  check in with your Posse. 

Installing line successfully can be a challenge – especially on weekends SMS’s validation messages on intl. phones seem to have a hard time getting through – for helping getting line to work please visit  https://help.line.me

NOTE: you will need a physical sim to validate your line account – once validate you do no longer need a sim

LINE ME

Background:
Line began in 2011 as the brainchild of engineers at NHN Japan, the Japanese arm of Naver Corporation (formerly NHN) based in South Korea. Today the popular messaging service is operated by Line Corporation, a spinoff company headquartered in Japan, which still remains a subsidiary of Naver. We use line because of the relatively low adoption rate in the Americas – and so that your username can be  VESSEL NAME – First Name 

LINE vs ZULIP

We continued to use LINE as the voice calls for groups is superb ( we have been using it for group and dm calls for over 6 years ) and we are used to line’s quirks and hope to eventually switch to ZULIP – think of LINE as the left brains comm channel and ZULIP as the right brain organized chat. Use whichever you prefer for now.

Enjoy Last minute infiormation

With chat tools such as Zulip or Line you get last minute reports of relevant information from your fellow Posse members  – so you are in the loop.

A NOTE FROM BILL AND JEAN
  

tracking

A smooth exit for SY WANDERER out of Bahia del Sol.

SY JUBEL enjoys a welcome beverage upon entering Bahia del Sol

When travelling into Bahia del Sol in El Salvador vessels will be welcomed by Bill and Jean.  Bill and Jean sailed into Bahia del Sol years ago and made it their permanent home.  Now, in addition to being active members of their small island community, they enjoy helping cruising vessels navigate the entrance and exit channel.  Additionally, they maintain moorings in the Bay, and host infamous papusa feeds. 

In a recent conversation with a posse member, Bill mentioned he only has two moorings free at the moment in Bahia Del Sol, El Salvador. 

NOTE: If you plan to visit El Salvador in your Panama Posse journey this season (highly recommended), please send him an email at <elsalvadorrally@aol.com> with approximate dates for your visit.  He can then determine whether he should add more moorings to his field to ensure he has room for visiting vessels. (Not a reservation, but the registration of your intent).

Bill and Jean look forward to sharing their love of the Bay with fellow cruisers.

Always festive at Bill and Jeans in Bahia del Sol, 🇸🇻 El Salvador

12) ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS  

RICHARD SPINDLER

Richard Spindler in 2009

For those of you who do not know Richard, he is a distinguished figure in the sailing community, notably for his foundational role in establishing the Baja Ha-Ha cruising rally and with the inception of Latitude 38, a sailing magazine.

In addition Spindler is known for his voyages aboard his catamaran named Profligate. For nearly three decades the Baja Ha-Ha, under his leadership has been a staple in the sailing calendar.

Spindler’s vision and leadership have influenced the broader sailing culture, promoting adventure and camaraderie across the seas. His dedication to the sailing community and his pioneering spirit continue to inspire many in the maritime world.

And this is why I’m dropping a line to say thanks. Richards’ vision steered me into the rally circuit when I joined the Baja Ha-Ha back in ’09. It was more than a rally; it was a rite of passage for me, my wife and crew, and many others, I reckon.

Catching up in San Diego just prior to the kick off event, reminded me of the breadth of your wake through the sailing world. The helm you’ve held at Latitude 38 and the Baja Ha-Ha has not just influenced routes, safe anchorages on charts, but also the course of the community and spirit we all sail by. That’s the mark of a true leader – setting the sails not just for a boat, but for the whole flotilla.

Your steadfast hand on the wheel and eye on the horizon have guided more than just Profligate, they’ve inspired a fleet of sailors to find our own bearings and chase the horizon. The Panama Posse sails in the swell your efforts have created, and for that, we owe you a debt of gratitude.

Here’s to you, Richard, for the paths you’ve charted and the voyages still to come.

With respect, recognition and thankfulness;

Captain Dietmar

14) VISITING ISLA TABOGA 🇵🇦 PANAMA 

THE PAST AND THE PRESENT

image

Town of Taboga as seen from the head of the Ferry Dock

 

Rich in historical significance and boasting a relaxed getaway charm, Isla Taboga is an excellent place to visit near Panama City.  The island is so close to the city that there are multiple daily 30 minute ferries that bring people to and from the island for $17 round trip.  People visit to enjoy the beach, restaurants, hotels, multiple hiking trails, and the history.  

Panama Posse parrtty HQ

Anchorage can be found on either side of Isla Morro.

Isla Taboga was discovered in 1513 by the Spanish explorer Vasco Nunez de Balboa.  Many subsequent explorers who crossed the Atlantic from Seville, Spain would disembark in what is now Portobello on the Caribbean coast of Panama, cross the isthmus of Panama on foot or by horseback until they reached Panama City.  They would then board canoes to the galleons anchored off Taboga.  Deep waters with good holding surround the island and made it an excellent place for large vessels to find safe harbor from which to explore and conquer new lands near and far.

This painting from 1850 shows Ships of old on Anchor in the deep waters off Taboga.

Like the ships of old the same anchorage is used today by modern transporters.

Unlike the days of old however, the ships on anchor in this field today are awaiting their Canal transit.  This ship below, Sunny Bright, just won a transit for November 15th through auction for $4m.   

See this article for details on the current canal transits going to auction:

https://www.maritime-executive.com/article/panama-canal-auction-sets-record-4m-for-slot-as-congestion-grows

Going back 500 years again: By 1524 Father Hernando de Luque founded a church in the center of town and christened the town San Pedro.  The Church, while noted for being one of the oldest churches in the Western Hemisphere, is still standing and well cared for.  

A view inside of the Church

A view to the outside from the Church.

In the late 1500’s the island was renamed Taboga.  “Aboga” means “abundant fish” in the indigenous language of Taboga’s early inhabitants.  In the 1500’s many of Taboga’s inhabitants on record were slaves from Venezuela and Nicaragua.  The first Catholic saint of the Americas is said to have been born on the Island.  There is a cross in her honor on a hilltop with a beautiful view.  Today many people think of Taboga as the ”Island of Flowers” for all the flowers cascading over walls (from the most well maintained to the ancient, crumbling ones) and growing in the jungle.  The island is 12 square km; town itself, like many on the nearby islands, is quite densely packed and surrounded by wild jungle.  

Footpath in the town of Taboga

Today, one can travel along all the residential footpaths or in golf carts on the narrow streets in an afternoon and could spend days and days meandering through the jungle in search of treasure, wildlife, or relics of the past.  

Treasure: Early prosperity turned Taboga into a target for piracy.  In the 1600’s pirates became a formidable force in the area and Taboga was no stranger to their presence and pillaging.  Infamous Pirate Henry Morgan among others is said to have sacked the island and used it as a base while attempting to sack Panama City and other nearby islands.  Legend has it that there are ashes of pirates inside the walls of the church and treasures buried on the island.  One can walk to a monument called Los Tres Cruzes to see the three graves of pirates that attempted to disturb the peace on Taboga.  They lost their lives in the fight and have remained as a symbol to all who visit.  Taboga is not to be sacked ever again.  

Wildlife: Taboga is a volcanic Island that rises above the sea with a dense and healthy tropical forest.  While hiking through the forest we were treated to many (74) poison dart frog sightings, the smell of flowers, the sound of rain paddling the canopy overhead, the refreshing cool of mist hanging in the air slowly dripping down to the dark brown forest floor.  On the highest peak we enjoyed being at eye level with the largest and smallest of birds, from the black headed vultures to bright green teeny-tiny hummingbirds.

Relics of the past:  In the 1840’s the Pacific Mail and Steamship Company set up a shipping company on Taboga thinking they would move mail and produce throughout the region.  They ended up moving gold and gold diggers to and from California during the Gold Rush.  There are remnants of their shipyard operation on Isla Morro which is connected to Taboga by a sand spit.  In 1885 a medical center was built on the island while the French were making their attempt at the Panama Canal construction.  Many workers would take ill and go to Tabogo for care and quarantine.  While convalescing on Taboga, French painter Paul Gauguin, painted a scene of the bay that is appreciated to this day.  Additionally, the US military build a base on the island during WWII.  A bunker was built on the highest point with a 360 degree view that today offers a welcome breeze and incredible views of Taboga Bay, Panama City, the perlas Islands, and ships awaiting Canal transit.

An large, old anchor sits on Isla Morro with connecting sandspit and Isla Taboga in the background. 

Poison Dart Frogs are everywhere in the jungle on Isla Taboga

Colorful mushrooms are also abundant on the forest floor.

So many ships on anchor between Isla Taboga and Panama City.

16) GOOD NAUTICAL:

COSTALEGRE: THE HAPPY COAST

GOOD NAUTICAL

Costalegre translates to the Happy Coast.  The 135 nm stretch of coast in Mexico known by this name runs from Cabo Corrientes (the southern limit of Banderas Bay) to Manzanillo.  There are 20+  wonderful anchorages along this stretch of coast that make it a fabulous place to cruise.  As always, choose your own adventure and take your time to enjoy the most Happiness you can along the Happy Coast. Of course the Panama Posse started in Barra de Navidad and we hope to see you at the kick off event staring Dec 7 – and don’t forget to bring your  expired flares…

Good Nautical Costalegre

With over 30 anchorages the Costalegre is the Panama Posse playground. The water is usually warm and pleasant with gentle dinghy beach landings, Some of these remote anchorages are solitary with the exception of Tenecatitia which at the height of the cruising season will have up to 50 yachts at anchor.

18) COSTA RICA 🇨🇷 NO ARMY SINCE 1948 

In Costa Rica – December 1st as a National Holiday in commemoration of the Abolition of the Army in the country. 

More details on this here https://www.americasquarterly.org/article/why-did-costa-rica-really-abolish-its-military/

Costa Rica’s armed forces played an important role in building its state infrastructure and creating a sense of nationhood. From defeating an 1857 pirate invasion led by William Walker, to what would be the country’s last military coup in 1917, the military were front and center in the country’s political life. So that made it all the more momentous when on December 1, 1948, the then-leader of the governing junta, José Figueres Ferrer, issued a declaration abolishing the armed forces. More geopolitical details here  https://www.americasquarterly.org/article/why-did-costa-rica-really-abolish-its-military/  

MO ARMY IN COSTA RICA

The abolition of Costa Rica’s army led to the development of a unique cultural identity for the country, centered around peace and social progress. Some key cultural facts associated with this significant day include:

Celebration of Peace and Democracy  Military Abolition Day in Costa Rica is a celebration of peace and democracy. It’s a reminder of the country’s commitment to these values and its status as one of the more stable and peaceful nations in Latin America.

Focus on Education and Healthcare The resources that might have been allocated to military expenditures were redirected towards education and healthcare. This shift has contributed significantly to Costa Rica’s high literacy rates ( 98.04 % )  and robust public health system.

Influence on National Identity  The lack of a military is a point of pride for many Costa Ricans and is considered a defining feature of their national identity. It reinforces the country’s image as a peaceful and eco-friendly destination.

Environmental Stewardship & burgeoning Bureaucracy  Without military spending, Costa Rica has been able to invest more in environmental protection and conservation. This commitment has made the country a leader in eco-tourism and sustainability. On the other hand it has also created a  powerful class of bureaucrats which is sometimes stifling progress and entrepreneurship .

International Recognition  Costa Rica’s unique stance on military abolition has garnered international attention and respect. The country plays a significant role in peacekeeping and conflict resolution discussions globally.

Public Celebrations Military Abolition Day (Dec 1) is marked by various public celebrations, including speeches, parades, and cultural activities that reflect the country’s commitment to peace and social welfare.

Impact on Education The day is also used as an opportunity to educate younger generations about the importance of peace, democracy, and civic responsibility, reinforcing these values in the Costa Rican society.

 San Jose Museum

Museum Instead of Military Headquarters  The former military headquarters in Costa Rica is now the National Museum. This transformation from a symbol of military power to a cultural and educational institution is a physical representation of the country’s values.

Money saved not having an army 
Typically, countries spend a portion of their Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on defense. The global average military expenditure is about 2.6% of GDP. In contrast, Costa Rica allocates these resources to other areas. Based on CR’s 2021  GDP Costs Rica saves close to  2 Billion USD annually.

RISKS >

Dependence on Security Arrangements   Without its own military, Costa Rica may rely more on regional security arrangements and the protection of neighboring countries or international organizations. This dependence could be seen as a drawback in terms of national sovereignty and self-reliance in defense matters.

Limited Defense Capabilities In the event of a direct threat or conflict, the absence of a military force means limited capabilities for defense. While the risk of large-scale military conflicts in the region is currently   low, the lack of a standing army could be a concern in a rapidly changing global security environment .

Vulnerability to Non-Traditional Threats
Non-traditional security threats, such as drug trafficking, illegal fishing, and organized crime, can pose challenges for countries without military forces. Costa Rica does maintain security forces like the police and border control to address these issues, but the absence of a military  limits it’s response to more severe threats.

ROB AND DEBORAH ON SY AVANT

SY AVANT hauling out for some boat projects.

Rob and Deborah left the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State in 2013 and sailed south along the Pacific Coast into Mexico.  They spent three years cruising in Mexico, 2 years in El Salvador, and now three years in Panama.  SY AVANT and crew was among the very first vessels in a group of intrepid sailors now called the Panama Posse.  (Rob refers to the the First Posse as the Original Gangsters

In their ten years cruising from their homeport in Port Angeles they have done a lot of boat work underway and, of course, have a list of projects yet to be done.  Rob is very active on the line with safety alerts and exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful with OpenCPN.   

Some items they wish they had done earlier in their voyage:

  • Install a noisy AIS cockpit alarm
  • Cockpit VHF handset
  • Thermal Cooker
  • Solar Motion lights (3)
  • Solar deck level marker lights (4)
  • Mainsail lazybag/stackpack

The goal for the Panama Posse barrel is to identify ways in which we can help communities and entities living on the edge and define new standards of sustainability.

Our goal is to find the silver lining and long term solutions to communities living in coastal impact zones.

Presently, the Barrel is in Shelter Bay Marina (SBM).  Anyone in SBM or going through between now and February, please Find Juan Jo, the marina manager, and sign the Barrel.  The plan is to keep the Barrel in SBM til the Posse Party in February and then send it up the Eastern Seaboard.  If anyone is interested in helping with this transit to the event in Belize please contact the editor@panamaposse.com directly on the Line Ap or by email.

23)  SAFETY ALERT:

⚠️ NIGHT PASSAGES AND BEST PRACTICES

Captains and crew aboard cruising vessels are wise to be on constant alert day or night.  Night Passages are inherently more dangerous than daytime passages due to a distinct change in how we see and what we do and do not see in the darkness.  Passages made between sunset and sunrise have a particular set of best practices that are important to the safety of ones vessel and crew.  Please review the following list and consider what you can do to make every night passage safe.

  • Before the onset of darkness prep topsides.  Make sure everything is well stowed or tied down.  If sailing, choose a comfortable and prudent sail configuration.
  • Consult all navigational charts along your planned course.  Be sure to zoom in  to look for any rocks or obstructions that may only be visible on a closer look.
  • Run radar, throughout the night.  If possible overlay your radar image over your electronic chart to verify both with one another.  If there is a discrepancy, trust the radar over the electronic chart. 
  • Set  a watch schedule and make sure that everyone on watch understands how to use navigational and safety equipment including AIS. 
  • If entering or leaving an anchorage, harbor, or port be sure to give a wide berth to headlands.  
  • Know how to read navigational and ship lights at night.

Navigating coastal and offshore waters along the Panama Posse route outside of US Waterways mariners will find places where the charts  do not match up with the actual contour of the land and sea.  Being aware of this as a fact is imperative to the safety of ones vessel and crew.  Charts are not always GPS accurate. Use opencpn and Sat charts as an additional aid to navigation.

Be aware, be cautious, be vigilant, and, most importantly, be safe. 

Objects at night have come up a lot faster. 

24) ⚠️BOLO VICENTE HERRERA 

BOLO VICENTE HERRERA

WE ARE ISSUING A BOLO FOR VICENTE HERRERA 

Vicente has been a stable in Acapulco harbor and we are desperately searching for  him. All calls to his whatsapp and cellphone number have gone unanswered as we suspect many other seafarers in Acapulco are also missing. A lot of the comms in Acapulco are still down.

If you have any information about Vicente 
please notify the Panama Pose immediately

25)  RETURN TO THE DIESEL BUG 

Diesel Bug

 After a season of leaving a vessel in the the tropics it is time to check the stored diesel. Fuel in tanks deteriorates over time, as it reacts with the oxygen in the air. Usually, fuel can stay in a usable condition under storage for up to a year, after which it may begin to develop sediments. Fuel is not just affected by these residues, but also bacteria and fungi.

Water that forms in fuel tanks due to condensation (when the tanks heat up during the day and cool down at night and are not full, for example), creates the perfect petri dish for bacteria. One of the most common microorganisms that can grow under these circumstances is the diesel bug, deteriorates your fuel and create a sludge capable of damaging your engine.

Once you get underway it shushes around and the fuel pickup hose quickly gets clogged. The bug clogs the fuel system.

Diesel Bug

ACTUAL CAUSES

  •     Humidity in the air
  •     Fuel tank condensation
  •     Fuel tank insulation
  •     Air leak on seals on fuel tank filler cap inc
  •     Damaged O-rings
  •     Poor fuel station storage quality
  •     Low volume of sales at fuel station
Diesel Bug

 REMEDIES

Once you have the bug  

1) Separate the water from the diesel

2) Shock and kill the diesel bug with biocides

3) Remove sediments from the bottom of your tank

 A biocide will quickly and effectively kill the problem 

Diesels Bug Killer

To Prevent the bug

1) Fill the tank to the brim each time

2) Use a fuel filter to take on fuel from the pump

3) Use Enzymes to prevent the bug from forming in the first place 

For ongoing maintenance. Fuel Doctor, Soltron and Star Tron have result oriented enzyme formulations.

26)  MUST SEE: 🇲🇽 YAXCHILAN, CHIAPAS

image

Ruins of an ancient Mayan city.a

Yaxchilan is an ancient Maya city located on the bank of the Usumacinta River in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. During the height of its power the kings of Yaxchilan built gleaming temples, pyramids, and luxurious palaces clustered along the grand plaza.  Yaxchilan was one of the most powerful Maya states along the course of the Usumacinta River, with Piedras Negras as its major rival. Architectural styles demonstrate clear differences that mark a clear boundary between the two kingdoms.

In 1882 archeologist Desire Charnay named it City Lorilla but Yaxchilan was a large center, important throughout the Classic era, and the dominant power over such smaller sites as Bonampak and was a rival of Palenque, with which Yaxchilan warred in 654.

The site is particularly known for its well-preserved sculptured stone lintels set above the doorways of the main structures which contain hieroglyphic texts describing the dynastic history of the city.

Depicted here is the possibility of the largest drawbridge in the world prior to European invention.

Yaxchilan had long been known to include an unusual raised terrace beside the river and pier in the river; these structures were long theorized to be the remains of a bridge thought to have been a suspension bridge built by the Maya across the River. If so, it would have been the longest bridge discovered in the ancient world. Yaxchilan required a dependable passageway to provide an uninterrupted flow of traffic across the river on a year-round basis.

The prevailing theory is by constructing a 100-meter long suspension bridge featuring three spans extended from a platform on the grand plaza of Yaxchilan crossing the river to the northern shore. This span would be the longest in the world until the construction of the Italian Trezzo sull’Adda Bridge in 1377 and this unique feat of engineering has been virtually reconstructed by computer by archaeoengineering techniques by Engineer James A O’Kon PE. Results of this hypothesis were presented to the archaeological and engineering world in the pages of National Geographic magazine in 1995. 

Yaxchilan

The First Panama Posse gang to visit Yaxchilan was SV RESPITE / MY CROSSROADS AND SV CARINTHIA utilizing local knowledge by LUIS a Chiapas based bilingual tour-guide which still operates in the area. The Area and adjacent world heritage sites are bets accessed via a multi-day excursion from Marina Chiapas a sponsor of the Panama Posse.
