Hi Rally,

I have a trace of the Dos Palmas ferry route (and even pearl farm) but
i didn't upload them when i saw the route is already there. Perhaps I
can check. Also, the islands of Honda Bay are not tagged they way
locals call the islands...just remembered it now...will correct later
:P

ferry routes also depends on directions of the waves i.e. boatmen and
sailors don't approach waves head on but at around 45 degrees to
lessen impact.

i used to boat around laguna lake as a child and that was one of the
things experienced boatmen taught me :P

I explore, therefore I blog.
