After having to come back into the Caribbean to repair our hurricane damaged catamaran, we find home in a place called Linton bay, near the Panama Canal, where we take a few days to explore the area before we get to work. With cracked bulkheads and almost all of her electronics destroyed by lightning, this salvage boat needs a major rebuild before she can head out into the Pacific Ocean again, but the crew are determined to make this happen.
SV Parlay is a hurricane damaged 2012 Lagoon 450 Catamaran bought in Tortola, BVI at the beginning of 2018. Colin and his friends spent months rebuilding her, before setting sail across the Caribbean. Follow our journey as we continue to fix her and eventually circumnavigate the globe!

    I say this all the time. I live my dream through you guys. Thank you so much for the heart warming videos. I use to be a rescue diver and couldn't get me out of the water. Had major accident in military and now fully disabled. I'm unable to dive, boat, ski, any of it. I've watch all your videos at least 3 times. Thank you for keeping a smile on my face. I always look forward to new videos. Keep up the excellent work all.

    Small fish for spearing NZ would ballow that size?

  • kraljo1

    She is not missing the fish but rather pushing it away with the shaft,because speargun needs some distance to develop speed and power. So all she needs to do is shoot little further away,like a feet or so. And sharpening a harpoon wouldn't hurt.

    ... great videos. keep calm and carry on. Scuba Scissors, (or any will do), while the lion fish is on the spear (in the water), dispatch the spines before bringing onboard. safe, swift and efficient. ... lemon/citrus grilled lion fish, nice. #Cheers m'dears

    If you've ever wondered what it's looks like to have your yacht struck by lightning. (yes the strike is caught on film). A multiple strike so powerful that it actually blows a hole in your hull below the waterline and you're single handed sailing and your yacht start sinking at night in a very remote anchorage. Most of your electrics are fried (no radio, and in a place so remote that you have no other way of calling for assistance).....the water is rising inside your boat and you have no choice but to dive over the side into the pitch back sea and patch the hole in the hull whilst being circled at arms length by sharks (Yes the sharks are caught on film too). Do yourselves a favour and watch 'Sailing into Freedom's' latest episode svsoft.info/award/ebDQhZN6v73Gt3k/video.html

    Love your vids and happy birthday! Only thing is the skurfing in the mangroves...looks like a pretty special natural area and wasn’t very wide, so I’m not sure it was the best choice in terms of ecological conservation. Plenty of wildlife life among mangroves so skurfing through there can be quite disruptive. Food for thought for next time. You guys seem fairly ecologically minded so I hope you consider just quietly exploring the mangroves at a slower, less impactful pace next time!

  • Scottydubs

    Is it legal to spear fish while scuba diving in Panama? I always thought that wasnt allowed in most places. Not trying to be a karen. Don't care either way. Just curious.

    • Oceano Martina
      Oceano Martina

      Only Lion fish is legal because it is an invasive species, this activity is actually impulse by the government and many nonprofits in different dive shops of panama in order to protect the reefs 🙂
