Good info. My experiences with Colombian authorities have been positive and they seem to be genuinely interested in keeping their waters safe for visitors. So, good strategy to stick to Colombian territory.
Re Honduran fishermen. Lets not denigrate the good guys. Ive only had G-R-E-A-T experiences with them. They may indeed be heavily armed because of the waters in which they work
, but good guys in my experience. They do well during the season and don't financially need to harass cruisers. They are much more likely to buy you a beer
or give you some lobster. I know some who not only have several big fishing
boats (some of the best maintained fishing
boats Ive seen anywhere), but nice homes etc ashore too. Anyone causing trouble who looks like a Honduran fisherman is not likely really a fisherman.
