#263: Zeepaard bike boat to Haiti

Finally – about 6 months later than my naive self originally thought – about 55 of the bikes I’ve been collecting at the Bike Lab made their way to a marina in the Chesapeake Bay, where they eventually will go on the Zeepaard sailboat to Haiti.  My friend Kalia drove the Uhaul for 10 hours, including through/over the 18 mi long Chesapeake bay bridge/tunnel.  We spent a couple days on the docked boat with the crew.  Interviews are with Kalia, Captain Ray Thackeray, and crew Paul and Daisy, with background music by 4 cats on board.  The Zeepaard is a 60 year old 97-ft long ketch that need lots of repairs and is not for the impatient or faint of heart.  It’s sailing as part of International Rescue Group, and carrying medical supplies, used sails, etc.
