There is a Colombian restaraunt in South Beach Miami that we would visit often. Everything on the menu was good, but my favorite was skirt steak, rice, and beans with plantains on the side. Let me think great food, and rum....I may have found a new home.Could you stand me as a neighbor??????.....LOLOLOL.......i2f

After many years behind an airliner cockpit captain JC is now behind the wheel of his very own sailing yacht, Softair is a great example of one of Cheoy Lees most sought after masterpieces this yacht has a beautiful, classic hull shape with a sensible, deep vee modified fin keel and full skeg hung rudder to allow for safe, comfortable offshore passage making.

I will be in Cartagena de Indias for the rest of the year if anybody needs local knowledge about Cartagena de Indias/Colombia please contact me at all times, I will be happy to help.

i2fro I am editing a bunch of material and I will upload a longer video of the passage in order to entertain you

And to even entertain you better why don't you jump in one of those cheap Jet Blue flights with your wife and visit the boat? I wouldn't mind having you as a bartender for a few days I know you are good at it

I will be waiting for you, your crew and your cat at Cartagena i2fro

Here is a video of our arrival to Cartagena de Indias where I have counted more than 60 sailing yachts in the two marinas we have here:

Loved the video, JC. It's a great visual and the music sets just the right tone. I only have one question: How did you ever locate a handsome male model to come to softair in the middle of the Caribbean and stand at the helm so you could take his picture - just to try and fool us into thinking he is actually you?
