And for updates on whats happening on the boat

TwoFish Website

Wayyyyy back a couple years ago…  we met some great folks out at Sea!…

We were on a 3 day trip from Puerto Rico to Turks and Caicos..

During a midnight watch, Timbo at the helm..  sleepy eyed…

The VHF sparked off..  “ISLAND DANCER ISLAND DANCER’

Many many miles offshore, with no ships in sight, this was a little ‘weird’…    Radio goes off again calling Island Dancer…

Our new friends Gail and Jason were on the other end of the VHF…  Funny how you meet people!!!

Apparently our AIS systems were in contact, and with Jason being a little sleepy eyed also, he though he should call someone! Which just happen to be US!

Well… this chance meeting has turned into another adventure!

Robin and Timbo will be Joining Gail and Jason on their vessel TwoFish to cross the Pacific this March!

Part of the Arc Rally, we will be traversing approximately 3000 miles from Galapagos to Marquesas Islands…

Will be an adventure thats for sure!     Many more details to come

Kozyboat Returns to Puerto Rico !!!

Having a great time retracing our path from last year on the sail boat!

Seems the 500 mph option of traveling these days is quiet different from the 5mpg option we used last year!
Puerto Rico was our home for sure last year..  spending a few months during hurricane season, we met so many friends we now consider family!
Landing at the airport, we didn’t have our bags before Zev was picking us up barefoot with the red onion truck…
Spoiled to the 9’s (is this a scale to 10, if so, spoiled to the 11’s)…  we were shown our guest house, just steps from the beach.
After snacks, the kids hit the beach..  A huge dinner was planned with the largest roast I have ever seen… in true Puerto Rican style Zev had it was cooked on an outdoor bbq of charcoal!..  not checked for 2 hours.. taken off and perfect…
Captain Ron (aka Scotty) lives not far away.. Robin and Timbo went for a stroll to find him..
Yelling 4 floors up to his open door condo, no sign of Scotty..   Timbo giving up, suggested a female voice..
Robin had Scott out on the patio in about 20 seconds… 🙂
Now to open a door on the first floor, many people would Desend 4 floors, open the door, then walk back up with us.. not Scotty!
Out comes the fishing line.. and soon enough a set of keys land in our hands..  Good cast Bro!
Next day Robski and Timbo walked to downtown to rent a car, where the girls borrowed Zev and Yunia’s bikes and took off to the Hilton.
Rental cars during high season are more than $100 per day at the airport… but thats for tourists!   Timbo knows this game and has them booked at a small out of the way location at $24.99 per day including tax!
Flying around in our new ride, we cruise down to the Hilton Scuba shack to find Jessi sunbathing and Allie renting snorkel gear to the tourists..
Later in the Day the kids rode down to Old San Juan and visited the big fort..   A flat tire added some excitement…  Allie called a friend and received a ride back to the marina…    Timbo and Robin waiting with dead cell phone in hand had no worries, as the guys at the scuba shack kept us in the loop of the kids adventures…
Only 4 days in Puerto Rico, and 2 already gone, we are hitting all the old hangouts… so fun to show Jessi!!!
And so fun hanging with all our boating friends again!… we left here 8 months ago on Island dancer and many wondered if we made it!  🙂
Next day we just HAD to go to the Mall!!! ha…  Girlz had a blast as Timbo took it like a man (?) …
Soon enough back to beach…  cooler and beach chairs in hand!
Down to the marina for sunset where we ran into Bill Butler, a close friend and Ocean Sailor…  Many tales were told as Pico the dog ran around us endlessly in joy!
Walking back down the dock, we ran into Judith, who runs a sailing tour company… seems just a few minutes later she had us out around the bay for a  2hr sunset cruise!   Just how many friends do we have here!  amazing!
Our last full day in Puerto Rico was in the rain forest…   not the tourist side.. this is 4×4’in down small roads to the most remote area…
We had been here about a year and half ago, but it never gets old!.. in fact this trip we found 3 new caves that are partially underwater…
Im sure Allie and Jessi will be posting a very interesting GoPro Video soon!
Crazy day enjoying the sights sounds and awesome smells of the rainforest!   Never can atrip to Puerto Rico end without another awesome BBQ by Zev!  Thanks Bro!
Great TRIP!    Next UP.. BVI’s and back onboard Day Dream Believer!!
Have a Great Day!
Timbo!

Exumas Exploring

Had some fun in GeorgeTown during their annual Regatta.. Luck be had, we showed up for day 1 of the races..
The locals are allowed to build temporary shed’s on the beach to make restaurants and bars for the weekend event.. they all have to be removed by the following Wednesday.

So.. lots of action in town this weekend… the racing was really neat, we anchored in turn 3 of Daytona!! They would come flying at us and tack at the last second.. loved it!
The cruisers have a neat system here.. a pickup truck takes you to a butcher (4 miles away) 3 times a week… The food we bought there was beyond excellent…
(If you’ve been in the Caribbean you know this is hard to find!) Frozen Chicken “parts” are a common item we buy.. it’s just the way it is here.Heading up the Exumas we pulled into a random spot called Rudder Cut.. We had no idea what was there other than some shelter for the night..
Being the only boat, we found a nice spot near a huge cave.. and a nice beach! Love this place…
A boat on the AIS was ‘following’ us all day… soon enough they peaked around the corner and anchored with us..
Then another boat showed up… and we knew them from San Juan… small world eh! Sundowners on their boat were welcomed!Eventually a Cat came around the corner with a lot of screaming or yelling go on… or is that laughing??
Looking a bit closer, someone is up the mast, underway? It ends up being a family from Australia (does that explain it?)
They bought the boat in France and are sailing it back, taking an extra year in the Caribbean 🙂
Their son is up the mast just hang around having fun.. I’d suggest a 2nd safety line, but otherwise he was having fun and seems to be up there all the time…
Later that night his Dad cranked him up again just for a swing..
We soon were introduced and they suggested we shouldn’t miss a pretty cool treasure in the next bay…
We Kayaked and SUP’d over to find a sunken “Piano” in about 15′ of water.
Rumour is David Copperfield placed it there (why I can’t tell you, someone research that for me)… but it’s very cool!
This is our favourite spot in the Exumas so far (of the 2 places we have been ha!).. the caves are pretty crazy..
Having a blast down here…
Hope you are having a Great Day!Timbo

Brights Grove Retreats (well half of them!!!)

But not until a 3rd day trip on Island Dancer Time! Great Great times with a ton of friends this week!

SUP fighting is the new sport.. Herb and Owen had a draw after many rounds!…

Even throwing each other off the boat at the end.. a few guts hurt bad today… not theirs.. ours… watching the action of these 2- two year olds… ha toooooo fun!!!
Trip across to the BATHS… love this place … in typical Wyrzykowski fashion the main route was abandon for a less travelled one.. some spots were swam across.. others rock climbing.. I’ve never seen the baths this way, very very very cool!
Great time had by all (an understatement!).. and some tears shed when they left for the airport… I think Annie is hiding in the bilge!!! So glad your clan decided to come to the BVI’s this year!
A new crew is here now (Lefebvre’s!!)… I’ve reloaded the film in the camera… so stay tuned for more action!!!
Have a Great Day!!!

Skittles and Snorkelling

Living on a boat does give more time to do the little things in life…  Highlight today
Place snorkel mask on face.   Close eyes..  Someone hand you a skittle…   Now tell me what flavour it is…
No one was able to get it..   ever…     I guessed Lime when it was root beer… ha!!!

Zev took us over to Scott’s Penthouse for Halloween and a GREAT DINNER!!!  Thanks to Both of you!!!
Picked up some of his Grandmothers secret recipes…  very cool…
Lots of stories and of course the night is never complete without a full fledged sword fight!!!

Last provisioning run (How many times will I say THAT!)…  Pico had to go for a wagon ride…
Robin bought a new lamp…  I see Im going to be installing some thru bolts to hold it on the table!
Ha!..   Have a great Weekend
Timbo
