Spirit of Malabo exits RMK Merrill-Stevens boatyard

Victor Mooney of Queens, New York disclosed a global HIV testing campaign from Miami-Dade – Mooney’s ocean rowboat, the Spirit of Malabo, arrived in Miami for emergency repair aboard a cargo ship in February.

RMK Merrill-Stevens provided pro-bono service so the vessel can continue its final 1,500 miles. After the ceremonial send-off, Mooney will row to Sea Isle Marina (approx. two nautical miles) and depart over the weekend towards New York's Brooklyn Bridge.

Mooney was robbed off the coast Haiti, after successfully rowing across the Atlantic Ocean in honor of his brother who died of AIDS and to encourage voluntary HIV testing.

Mooney departed from Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, which is located off the coast of Africa, arrived in St. Martin (FWI) – a hundred and thirty days later and made stops in British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic.
