Rio Dulce

Hey all, we are a 42 trawler, set up for non marina living. We've lived/traveled aboard since 2004 (15,000 miles). We've been kicking around going to the Rio Dulce via Cuban coast and hang out for awhile. Any one know any other trawlers who done this. Any info/advice/experiences would be much appreciated.

Dual Dreams..

Look under Google Earth to BSB
in this section #483 and you will be able to download a .kml file of Rio Dulce with which you can produce 60 charts in .kap format suiteable for OpenCPN.

Phil,from the same # 483 thread knows Rio Dulce well and I am sure will help you.
