This is our boat, the Floreana, a 16 passenger yacht with a crew of 6. The small oval windows are the portholes of the cramped, stuffy cabins where se stayed. They had air conditioners, but they barely took the edge off the heat. They reeked of diesel oil. The most comfortable place was on the upper deck where there was always a sea breeze, and a canopy protected from the sun. We used the dinghy at the left for traveling between the boat and shore. The hoist at the rear was used for the dinghy. It was a popular perch for birds, especially frigatebirds.
