It still might be legally cheaper to store in no man's land between Colombia and Venezuela in a storage building, a legal way just paying for storage while your bike is not temporarily imported in either country. I know C5 on here who works in VZ and CO has done the multiple times and has a good lady who takes care of the storage for long periods of time without trouble. There is a thread here or on HUBB about it.

Bonded at $100 a month in Panama is a legal way that should allow you to store it there for nearly any length of time you are willing to pay for AFAIK

Illegal ways are cheaper but that's how it works, little risk involved

I've left mine in VZ and CO multiple times the shady ways without trouble yet.

If you store privately your bike is still in Panama, if yopu store it in a bonded warehouse you have to return your TVIP and your bike is technically not in Panama anymore .
I don't know the limit or if there is even one , but yes you can definitely store it longer than privately .

Free zone in Colon could do the same, but you'd need to "know" somebody probably. I checked my bike out of Panama by just telling the customs office at the free zone that I was putting it on a boat for Colombia. They cancelled out the temporary import, but then I just rode out the gate and down the road to go put it on a boat about 20 minutes away in a different town. They didn't actually physically verify that it REALLY left the country.

Excellent investigative reporting

It's a small world. I "think" I "remember" leaving a Geocash in the upper deck, second door from the stern, port side - if so, its the same ferry.

No investigating was necessary. I was merely trying to keep up to date on overland possibilities between Europe and East Africa (the usual route has been cut by the Syrian civil war), and happened to remember the name of the mythical Darien ferry.

According to a well-informed source in Cartagena the first trip of "San Blas Ferry" got delayed to the 23rd...so the trips scheduled for the 17th and 22nd won't take pcace either?

Watching in pure disbelief, not getting too excited about what everyone wants and knows it's not going to happen.

The first Spanish words to be learned are: esperar hasta mañana que no tendrá ningún problema.

I've seen it. Saw it floating at anchor in Portobelo when we were there early September. Even briefly talked to Fritz about it and his thoughts then was that it might sail in six weeks... so right about now.

We'll check it out personally this early December and give a full report.

We're going down that way!

Already booked on the Rat down, but need an alternative to return.
