Is there anybody out there that knows of a boat named the Coconut? It should be a 32 ft. steel cutter that has just left Port Antonio, Jamaica for the Panama Canal. I got in touch with them through the "float plan" website, and they just offered me a position on their boat for a cruise to Australia. This seems strange to me because I am a New Yorker with no sailing experience, and the captain knows this. The captain of the boat is an Australian named Piet. He gave me a reference who has been very helpful. I feel that this is a great opportunity and I am nearly committed to it; however, I wanted to make one last attempt to find more out about this boat before I buy that ticket for Panama.
Thanks for any help!
