Zeehag, just gonna slowly make or way down the coast, but it would be great to see you in SD!
where in sd will you be staying? i am stuck here until my packing gland and chainplates are finished and i do some cosmetic interior--more functional than cosmetic--shelves inside the cabinets are nonexistent..same with drawers under cpt bed in master stateroom... just a small amount of work, but necessary for stowage--i anticipate december departure pending unforeseen distresses...... meeting in sd shouldnt be a problem..would be fun!

Hey, Zeehag and any others who might need to stop in Turtle Bay on the way south from SD, if you go ashore, ask for Hector Estrada, one of the "town fathers'. Wonderful man, known to all in the area. He will set you straight on repairs, welding, provisioning, banking, etc. Comes from a long line of abalone fishermen. I used to stop there regularly on deliveries if the weather got stinky and always took a couple of trash bags of clothing for him to give to the locals in need... say 'Hola' from Capt Phil

sounds good--i plan on not stopping for first breath until mazatlan--i have done the bahias by auto a while ago--only a coupla years, so i am hoping this formosa will rush me to my friends by new years-- i dont know if we will be there in time but i wanna be out of sd by christmas---dont want to sail by schedule and dont want to have to be hit by any storms on our way , either----not too many north protected harbors on the way down...wont go to ensenda--just another border town, to me, and kali storms do hit there as well......i hope to still have 3 day windows by my departure date..
even though ti plan on doing a straight shot, is always good to have a haven for "just in case"--so we will keep in mind the resource for bahia tortugas, thankyou..

My 7 year old nephew was with us for 2 weeks. He went home a small man. He drove the boat, navigated, dropped, and raised the hook, swam with sharks, and a lionfish too, had control of the dink, and slept like a rock every single night.........i2f
Thats so nice!

Do you know Bill and MJ Makepeace, Zee? They spend a fair amount of time at the Maz marina. If you do and you see them tell them Greg says hi. Bill and I played some gigs together in Barra de Navidad a couple of years ago.
