Default Looking for unpaid working passage from Panama heading West

Early 50's retired person, now a sailing bum. Currently in Panama. Looking for a boat leaving anywhere in Central America going more or less west. I would eventually like to work my way over to Asia, but am in no hurry. Any Pacific destination is fine with me.
