I bet they took the masthead cow down and put it below for safety (see another thread here tonight).

Your post reminds me of what it was like to be anchored in the South anchorage in Mazatlan, Mexico (population around 500,000 with about a million visitors annually). As the wind clocked around as it did every day, we did our best to NOT be aboard around 2 to 4 pm as we were then directly down wind from the city sewer's outfall only about a mile away.

It was to die for, literally!

Hahaha, oh god. The best part l forgot to put in the first "smelly boat from hell post" was that at work earlier l saw harbor patrol come my the dock, towing a little blue sailboat. Then the wind change, and l smelled the worst, fishiest, sealiony smell on crack. Then l turn to a friend and say "god thats horrible, l wonder if that was that little boat. l would hate to be moored near that boat" then l get home and l was. Damn it.

As far as updates on the smell, its still pretty bad. lt was so hot today on the water. l hope it will just dry it out or something. l have only had glared at it going to and from work. l'm going to go do laundry. l will take one for the team and have a closer look.

I had a liveaboard nearby with an awful smell - I was told it was his shower draining into his bilge instead of an isolated sump. Usually the wind would shift so I got a good dose right around dinner. Can't imagine living in one of these smelly things.
