Proof of the existence of the M/V SeaHunter
No, this isn't the SeaHunter. It's the Mini Me, the ship's tender. Got to finally meet Greg, the ship's owner, Bill, the journalist, Vital the translator and Gary, the captain of the vessel. Spent six wonderful hours with them on the wharf in Cayes under a hot sun while we waited for the local authorities to get their act together. The latest is that the delegate (President's representative), the mayor, the Immigration Director, the head of police are all in favor that the SeaHunter offload it's cargo tomorrow. One last hitch: the local Director of Customs requires guidance from PaP and is holding out. We're hoping that this will be resolved by tomorrow morning and that we can start filling our warehouse space with humanitarian goodies. If this does not happen tomorrow, the M/V SeaHunter will head north. So, please, keep the prayers coming!
