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

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.
