work boat traffic jam

Post by harpoonhedd » Tue Mar 29, 2011 12:17 pm

this pic was taken at a small port on Pacific Coast Panama a few years ago( near Costa Rican border...chiriquis)...tides change here 14 foot at a cycle...so if you need ice or to bring in fish ...its gotta happen in a small window...I worked at a small dive camp about 15 miles away...we needed ice and some groceries...

this place was a mud flat at low tide...so when it was busy...it was real busy...always one of the highlights of my week when we would come in w/ the tide...

lots of super cool handmade wooden vessels here...a lot of improvising for sure...but good skippers!

they really loved to show off the name of their boats too!..Pelicano...old school taggers...LOL...

more 40 hp yamahas than you can shake a stick at...the motor of choice for sure( even our own 20ft panga)...and not electric starts...my right arm still has issues...vapor lock sucks!
