Re: zeehag on the Move

Zee,
Suggest you check out Marina Mazatlan on the north end of the city. Take one of the small taxis, very cheap. El Cid marina in the same area is a little pricey.
You can always get another boatee to help you move your boat.
John

Re: zeehag on the Move

Just talked to a friend last night whose new 43 ft boat is at Marina Mazatlan. He said the 5 month summer special came to $325 a month; probably as good as you will find in Mexico. I have stayed there a couple of times and enjoyed it, but not for the Summer. Good bus connections and good people to deal with. You might also think about a portable air conditioner from the local Home Depot for Bubba. . My cat did OK with just air cooling from fans and open ports in the fall.

Re: zeehag on the Move

thankyou for info-- your cat has less fur than my maine coon mix boy-- he is actually suffering even with lying on his back open and dead loooking.......you have a pretty kitty!
patrick advised me that would be around the amount i could expect-- for a summer , isnt a bad idea--especially as there is some protection from big blowies.....

Re: zeehag on the Move

I know a number of people who have stayed the Summer (or longer) there (in preference to Paradise Village in PV) and all have good things to say about it. Just don't get a direct hit (anywhere).

Re: zeehag on the Move

Used to be a lot of US ex-pats living aboard there, many had cars for runs to town... great bunch who really helped each other out, very social... attended many dock and parking lot parties there. Used to be a tamale lady who came once or twice a week and sold the most delicious home made tamales out of the trunk of her car... sold out every day. Not a bad place to roost for your hurricane season, Zee... cheers, Capt Phil

Re: zeehag on the Move

While you are at Marina Mazatlan, you can check out the Singlar boatyard next door. My friends boat is actually in the yard currently, fixing some stuff found in the survey and getting the bottom done, and he says they do good work. There is also a marine supply live-aboard in the marina.

Re: zeehag on the Move

Zee: Owner of restaurant at PE is Pedro, very nice guy; wife runs small store below. Also check out the Hidden Cove (or something along those lines) yacht club. It's really a social club. A donation of 20 bucks will get you in. (I don't think they have reciprocals, but still a good way to make quick contacts. They do have cool shirts.) Store has pretty good provisions, but there's another store about a 10 minute walk up the road toward the hiway, owner is Fernando. They have a pretty good selection of meat in a freezer, plus some decent produce. Owner is Fernando, and he'll usually give you a ride back if you ask. Also there is a restaurant (for variety) inside the "gated" trailer park that's pretty good too.

On Sundays, there's an open air market in Loreto that has very good produce. Getting to Loreto is a little expensive; you can grab a cab (about 50 or 60 bucks USD), or hitchhike on the hiway, or flag down the bus heading north. They run a couple of times a day, I think, but check with the locals. Not sure of cost, but trip from La Paz to Loreto was 500 pesos. You might ask about "Wild Loreto," a tour company that operates an funky Mercedes 4 wheel drive with bench seats in the back. If their around, you can get a round trip to Loreto for about 25 USD plus tip. If you do you them, Francisco is very nice (young kid, very helpful), they'll take you to the market on Sunday--ask for the ride back behind the airport. It's kind of a kick.

Also, there's a diver in PE named Ray whose very helpful and has a little shop in the Singlar facility on the first level. Hope all this helps if you go to PE. I'm off camping for a week, so no email till later. Have a great time.

Somewhere between the ideal and reality is the actual. Best of luck.
