Re: Clothing, Sea of Cortez

Now this will get a laugh in Mexico, but guys, have you ever tried a sarong? They are the BEST! Now I know why Scots wear kilts. For lounging around the boat and some place where locals won't see you...

Re: Clothing, Sea of Cortez

Sea Dreaming...I'll be about 6 months behind you. I'm leaving Alaska (house goes on the market in February) and am going to live onboard, SOC. I've been wondering about clothing too. Pretty sure I can leave most of my Alaska gear behind. :-)

I've been making some cotton and linen skirts, I find them cooler than shorts.

Thanks, Ann.

Forgot to add, we each have a bathrobe. LOL Right?
I'm surprised by how frequently we use them.

Re: Clothing, Sea of Cortez

I'm going to be about 6 months behind you...I was thinking of ditching all my warm clothes, but seeing the overnight temperatures in Jan, Feb, March, it gets down to a low of 50 degrees, that's not really cold but it does mean that I'll want a sweater and some cozy, warm pants in the morning to enjoy my coffee. So I'm going to keep a few of those things.

I've been worried about staying cool, but I need to change my thinking to being comfortable no matter if it's July or January.

Re: Clothing, Sea of Cortez

KaminAK - keep your winter coat! 50 degrees is a full 60 degrees cooler than the Summer highs. You will feel every bit of cold! OK, thats the extreme end, but you get the point!

Re: Clothing, Sea of Cortez

It's so hard to imagine that I'm going to want a full on coat...in Alaska I don't put one on until it hits 32 degrees!! It's going to crack me up the first time I put on a coat and it's 50 degrees!!!

Re: Clothing, Sea of Cortez

figure winter down as far south as mazatlan you still find nocturnal temps of 46f. farther north more like phoenix..hot summers cold winters. yes it is desert.
mazatlan winters are t shirts shorts and flip flops. summer--tank tops shorts and flip flops.
bathing suits might be appropriate, as locals are decent folks and not many are nudists. remember these are good catholic folks.
baja is southern california. dress for gringos.
mainland mexico , west coast, mazatlan and south, tropical, more so as you venture south.
the clothing that will save your lives down here is cotton and loose. do yourself a favor and use an umbrella to shade you from the sun. drink more than 1.5 gallons of liquid daily.
have fun
