During my two week stay on the Caribbean island of Cayman Brac I was able to witness the arrival of a Cuban migrant vessel. The boat was carrying 37 people and had departed from Manzanillo seven days prior to landing on Cayman Brac. They were on route to Honduras, where they would then make there way up to the United States. Shortly after they had departed from Manzanillo their engine stopped working and they relied on their sail to carry them. Once they were brought ashore on Cayman Brac they were fed and clothed, but their vessel was determined to be not seaworthy. They were repatriated and reportedly happy with the decision.

As I looked closely at the vessel that had been brought ashore I was most impressed with their ingenuity and determination in their quest to build an ocean going vessel, in search of a new life. In the image below note that several truck inner tubes are fastened to tree trunks for added floatation / stabilization in rough seas.
