As many of my friends here know, I've been planning for some time to keep a sailing vessel down in Mexico - nothing over-the-top fancy or expensive, but a well-found vessel for cruising the Mexican Pacific coast and the Gulf of California each winter from mid-November to late-April.

I recently became aware of what could well be the perfect boat for me and my three cocker spaniel crew. I talked to the seller and we reached an agreement in principle - with one rather significant snag.

At the moment, it isn't possible for me to get away to go check the boat out for myself. Absent that, I'm not comfortable moving forward on the deal.

Problem: The boat is located in Barra de Navidad, quite a bit further south than San Carlos, the place I had thought I'd base my cruising from. The only people I know down that way have all taken their vessels up into the Gulf for summer cruising.

I emailed every surveyor within 200 miles of Barra, I think, offering to give the survey to anyone who would be willing to give the vessel even just a cursory eyeball scan to let me know if I should go ahead. I received replies from, let me see . . . uhm . . . yeah, here it is . . . not one person.

Bummer. In the meantime, there's at least one other serious boat-buyer who has expressed an interest. And he has already gotten himself as far south as PV, reportedly.

Then, unexpectedly, I received a PM from zeehag. She was just saying "Hi," then let me know that she is currently in . . . yep, Barra de Navidad! What are the odds?

I explained my situation to her and she has agreed to thoroughly check the vessel out for me. This all came together just as I was abandoning hope that I might actually have found the right boat for my purposes.

In the Small World category, when I passed along the boat-owner's request that she check to see if some work he had arranged to have done by his guy down there had been completed, she told me that she uses the same person to do her hull cleaning. She's trying to arrange to board the vessel with him the next time he's there at the marina.

This is one of the things I really love about CF . . . a seemingly impossible thing just falls together serendipitously, just because two strangers with a common interest are both members of this cruising and sailing forum.

I think it's wonderful serendipity but not surprised. She's always been very generous with her time, experience and knowledge here.

Re: Zeehag, a Friend Indeed

This thread is has been re-opened. Tao had requested that it be hidden because he was in the negotiation phase of his purchase, and some sensitive information was being discussed here. This info is no longer sensitive, so Tao has asked that the thread be re-opened.

Carry on!

Re: Zeehag, a Friend Indeed

tj walked...

Barra Navidad lagoon is a terrible place for a Hurricane.

When can you get out of there?
