This about sums it up a good portion of the passage + feeling like we were on Stars Tours for hours and hours....After the storm passed we encountered some fishing lines we couldn't get around, which we ultimately cut. We also encountered a panga that approached at about 50 miles offshore. It seemed strange to us, but they asked for water so we gave them some. In situations like that it's hard not to think they were scoping us out. Who knows. All ended well, but we took precautions by texting my sister to let her know what was happening and to have her follow up with us.
