Voyage of the Palantir 1990/93

2 1/2 year adventure to the Carribbean - LA thru the Panama Canal, Honduras, Guatemala, Belize to Florida on a 31ft Mariner Ketch called Palantir

On Mar 3rd 1990 my girlfriend and I left Los Angeles on my 31 ft Mariner Ketch and headed off into the unknown. After 5 yrs of saving and planning we were actually underway and there was no turning back. At that moment contemplating the voyage before us, transiting the Panama Canal, which had sounded good when it was far in the future, hit me. I had no idea what was in store for us, thousands of miles of open ocean and unknown lands to traverse. Each moment Palantir's bow cut closer and closer into places I had never known, it was scary, what was going to happen to us.
