We were on our way toward Belize, but our Icom 710 SSB radio broke yesterday so we are headed back toward Panama City, Panama to get it fixed or replaced (the radio is old so we hope to replace). Absolutely essential equipment for safety, weather information and keeping in touch with family and friends. Kathy and I both agree that the radio is so essential that we won't leave Panama until it is fixed. Just too risky to travel the 800 nautical miles North to Belize without daily weather updates.
