I was just asking.
I didn't say you *have* been rude. I was just urging you to understand the culture that doesn't really think a lot about "being in a hurry." THAT comes across as rude to me, but ... Island time and all that. It's just a fact. I understand that it's a tremendous inconvenience and I can only imagine your frustration.

Really? He wants to get his boat fixed? But there's no "disinformation" here. It's really OK if people disagree sometimes -- or misunderstand each other -- as long as they're willing to work it out. I'm really sorry the guy thought I said he had already been rude. Clearly he hadn't been. I hope he can find a rapid solution but I'm not optimistic. I've been to Isla Mujeres, and I don't recall seeing any large warehouse of boat parts. Might have missed it.
