Our valiant crew made an unexpected stop in Ponce, Puerto Rico last Saturday when Lady Slipper lost her prop.
With top-notch assistance from parts dealer Lilly at Boat Tech Performance, and the help of a local diver, repairs are quickly being completed.
After several days of hardship (see photos below) Lady Slipper and crew will soon be back en route. The unplanned detour led to some reconfiguring, so the plan is now to skip the stop in Jamaica and sail directly to Panama. Fortunately, new crew member Jim Quigley was able to change his arrangements and join the crew in Puerto Rico.
