I did this boat trip with several friends in summer of 2010 and it looks nothing like the pictures. The boat is much older than what the pictures show. The pictures must be from the time it was new which had to have been at least 15 years ago. The boat is also extremely slow. When we left Coco in the morning all the Pangas blew past us and by the time we got out to Ollie's the place was packed. Of course you can sleep overnight and catch it in the AM but the Pangas are there once the sun is up. The sleeping cabins in the rear of the boat leaked and water came in from the engine room reeked of diesel and was unbearable so 2 of us had to sleep on the top of the boat in the rain. The leaks were not new as there was a lot of mold in the cabins. We surfed lots of spots in Nica as well that were uncrowded but the boat is painfully slow so you spend most of the day traveling. All in all your better off staying in a hotel and taking panga day trips The crew was great and the owners were understanding and refunded our money when we left the boat early due to the leaking sleeping quarters. I don't want to flame them as they're good guys but the boat is in need of a total internal renovation. As far as the speed not sure if they can fix that but be aware that you will be passed by every panga and moving at a snails pace
