In search of Cayucos


As it appears that building a main hull from scratch will take too long and cost a lot, I have been searching for Cayucos to use as a base. A cayuco is essentially a dug-out canoe that varies in length, type of tree and quality.

After searching extensively for along the coast near Ceiba I finally found on a friends island in Cayos Cochinos. I have been waiting for several days for a price.. its not looking good.


In the mean time I just made a trip to Guanaja with my friends Tony and Hope. Sailing there on Tony’s speed boat was a blast. After stirring up trouble for the weekend I came away with an old 30hp motor, good pictures and some much needed rest.
