everywhere on earth is constantly changing.. our only constant is change. if we cannot live with change, we are too inflexible to tolerate life at all. whatcha gonna do then???
what to do ... what to do ...... one can either figure this out and eal with it or one can stay home and remain away from it...now for the subdivisions of each of those groups-lol who wants to make a flowchart????
if one is wiling an dable to deal with change, one willmake god and sure the item they are tryin gto keep safe is just exactly that-- the equipment
will be investigated by the owner of the item, and will be made safe for that tool or other item. if not, the tool/item will become lost
to them. oops.
if not able to investigate the situation, one will needt o find a safe place to keep the itm as a secondary plan.
if one is not flexible enough to adapt to changes, one needs to consider either less pricey item to lose or they need to make sure they dont have a reason to whine when it is gone due to lack of diligence in the investigating of the situation.
one does NOT leave boats in zihuatenejo for summer. is dangerous. storms run over ztown frequently in summer. so far, 4 of the named storms have rendered the area unanchorable. yet foks complain when their boat on a too light mooring
. did they try to save it?? no--they left it. NO ONE LEAVES BOAT IN DANGER
IN SUMMER in a hurrycame zone.
they lose the boat. is the way things are.
i truly and sincerely doubt the boat was cut from mooring
. there was way too much weather
activity in the area to rule
out storm damage. did they dive the mooring before they left boat there? heellno.
did they trust a mooring--an unknown and too light for boat mooring?? yes, they did.
my friends who reside on zihuat said there is no way the boat was cut off the mooring. the seas and winds were way too strong.
i think the best thing to do is figger the boat was lost to storm --- they are forming and running over ztown frequently this year--we are to letter m already and last yr only went to j--jova..and we still have to mid november for the rest of em. saw marks on a chain when it is easier to just drop lines into water
and take off with a boat not damaged?? makes no sense at all. there are many many rocks on this coast an d mny are underwater and mark the chains--i have lost galvo on all mine so far in just under 2 months of anchoring
..... is a sd day for the owners of halcyon, but they SHOULDA done the right thing by their boat and not left her in a 'cane zone unprotected.
yes all is changing.. but the cruisers will find they will be assisted more than hassled here in mexico
. if ye disagree--stay home or go elsewhere. the locals are not going to do anything to hamper their tourism income
. that is a given. when they do , the port captain
punishes them. when the boat owner is wrong, the port cpt will stand with the locals. when the boat owner has a legitimate complaint, that owner is assisted in a friendly and helpful manner. that is a good thing and prolly one reason zihuatenejo is a favorite cruising spot in winter, or high season. is avoided in summer, or low season.
