The interior of the Flicka is (surprise!) spacious, for her size. Her accommodations rival much larger sailboats. Headroom is unheard of in a sailboat of this size - 5' 10"! Her fit and finish is that of a high end boat. The teak interior is beautifully maintained. Forward there is a V berth that sleeps two. Aft to port there is a quarter berth. A folding table converts the V and the settee to starboard into a dinette suitable for entertaining four. The fully enclosed head is located aft of the settee.

Key West, FL, to Rio Dulce, Guatemala, in 8+1/2 days non-stop in 2007 (and back to Marathon, FL, afterwards) -
In April, 2007, Randy Kroeck wrote in Yahoo! Group:
We are on the Rio Dulce River in Guatemala after a great 8 1/2 day non stop passage. Left Key West April 3 and arrived in Port Livingston the11th. The customs official said in his 7 years in office we have beenthe smallest vessel to check in!! All the officials in the boardingparty,immigration, port doctor, customs, port captian and the water taxi driver had big smiles on their faces when they approached myFlicka.
Guatemala is beautiful! The river is spectacular! You can not truly appreciate a Flicka until you have made a substantial passage in one.
We leave this Sunday to head back to Marathon FL. We will travel up through Belize and Mexico and jump off from Isla Mujeres and head to the Dry Tortugas for a day then to Key West to check in and then back to Marathon.
