Re: Attack on US couple in Bocas del Toro, Panama...


We are ok. I actually was the first to answer the distress call on the radio. I couldn't sleep that night and had left my radio on for some reason. It was not a good situation, and I was in a marina 3 miles away without cell service running around trying to wake someone up with a phone that worked. I talked with the couple, who were anchored right beside us when we stayed on the hook for a month in Bocastown. They are doing as well as can be expected after such horrors. The community here is taking this very seriously, and the president flew into town today.

There were actually two boardings that night, but one was run off with loud screaming from the cruisers.

Thanks for checking in Brian.
