Review of “Southeast to Panama” – Robert C. Devine

Tweet Devine’s lifelong passion for sailing serves him well as a crewman aboard a catamaran sailboat bound from Puerto Vallarta to Fort Lauderdale via the Panama Canal.  Indeed, he casts himself as the narrator and protagonist in this tale of adventure, intrigue and romance.
