If you are new to cruising, do not be in a hurry to leave Mexico
. It is a great place. Give Mexico
two seasons and you will be glad you did. I did the jump in 2006 and am currently in Mexico to do it again. The whisker pole comment is valid as is Leonard's book. The beauty of Mexico is you can determine by cruising the weak points of the vessel and plan accordingly. Probably the biggest problems newbies have is inability to fix something when it breaks. After you leave N. America no repairs
really possible until NZ or OZ. you can effect repairs
in French Poly. But expensive and long wait time for any parts
. Hope this helps.
