Hey, he's CANADIAN eh? Cuba has no problems with the Canadians, just the Americans.

Just put a big maple leaf sticker on the boat.

No news to report yet. I am keeping an eye on the spot tracker every few minutes.

They may still want the boat to ferry their new El Presidente' around in style.

Good to hear from you Rik. Met you on the plane to Grand Rapids shortly after the crash you were working on with Skater.

Not a wife, but would like to hear. I'm more nervous about the record, 8 hours-36 minutes for a 46.8 mph average. Really want to see him blow it away.

Looks like they are about to enter the Yucatan straits. they have made good time so far. I am guessing that they are almost 3/4 of the way. I cannot measure distance on the SPOT tracker and don't have my handheld GPS to calculate distance based upon their last position.

Frank, do you have one?
