Pissed WARNING on the sailboat MetaComet (PANAMA - COLOMBIA)

If you are planning to take the sailboat MetaComet between Panama and Colombia, PLEASE STRONGLY consider the following two experiences from the ADV community:

By cu260r6 and Dr. Benny (January 2010):
http://afewmoremiles.com/2010/01/28/...he-darien-gap/
By nishgriff and the MotoTrip.org crew (December 2011):
http://www.mototrip.org/2011/12/12/p...-the-hard-way/
The purpose of this post is not to blacklist, but to inform fellow riders and our backpacker friends.

Not a blacklist? I certainly intended my post to be a blacklist! If it convinces even a single rider to find another means of crossing the Darian then I feel vindicated. Even a year later I'm still trying to come up with one redeming quality the 'capitan' possesses. You've been forewarned

The MetaComet strikes again! And that's just the reason I created this site: http://www.DarienGap.info Peekay, please post a review of your crossing and spread the word to other travelers!

Blacklist your twat but leave Alice out.

The stories were entertaining, but I appreciated this line most:

I would truly rather hitch a ride with drug runners next time than try my luck for a week with Herve and the Metacomet again.
