New world cruiser has questions
My name is Nicholas Wansten; I am part of a non-profit organization called Floating Doctors. We are nearing the seaworthiness of a 76 ft sail boat we are building in Palm Coast, Florida and will soon be sailing from here to Central America and the Eastern Pacific over the next 12 months to provide free healthcare to developing countries. We will be travelling from here, first to Haiti, then to Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Tuamotu Archipelago, Cook Islands, and Fiji, then back to our homes in Los Angeles.
I would really appreciate any and all advice we could get regarding the navigation of this route but more specifically anything having to do with entering port in these countries. What complications may we run into? We also have a boat dog and cat, how may this change the entrance process?
I welcome any other topics as well
