Along with Leonidas, we towed Batwing almost 380 miles in the open ocean, upwind to Ecuador. Fortuantely we arrived without any major problems despite it being a long tough haul.

We spent a LOT of time in Bahia de Caraquez on a mooring that we created from some 1/2 inch chain. The time seemed to roll on by as we towed a boat there, got anchored, spent two birthdays there and Halloween. We made some good friends while we stayed there and here are a few of our photos from towing Batwing, Quito, Caraquez, Banos, the Andes and more.

We took some trips through the inland Ecuador during 2008 while we were anchored in Bahia de Caraquez and loved the Andean Mountains. These two slide shows will tell you what you missed.
