Our Own Statement
* Updated *
After a wonderful trip on the Fantome, this page was  to be dedicated to
the people of Honduras and the Bay Islands and especially the children
of Omoa.

However, with the events surrounding Hurricane Mitch it has evolved
into more of a information center about the search and ultimate fate
of the S/V Fantome and her crew...

We were the last passengers aboard her (Oct 17-24) before Hurricane Mitch
came along and destroyed most of the beauty and grandeur that
was Honduras and the Bay Islands.

Nature and Time will restore the beauty of the land, but we pray
for the lives lost and the survivors of Mitch.

Keep Hope! - This was our slogan.  To hold on and pray for the best.
Now our hope is that this never happens again.
