IMHO websites can be misleading, particularly when the readers have no idea of what to look for.
If you were to trust those websites you would conclude that Maratonga (vessel recently lost
in the North Atlantic after an earlier incident that required tow by USCG) was in good shape. Maratonga was one of the regular boats in the Cartagena-San Blas backpacker business. Someone who was onboard Maratonga did not agree with the description in the website (safe, well equipped, etc).
