Actually Zee I've been down there quite a bit. Did a delivery from LaPaz to SD a while back, done most of the Sea of Cortez off and on for eons. Been south as far as Panama. I'll stick with what I said. There was a time when Mexico offered some good deals, but no longer. That said, compared to California, anything is a good deal, so that might be where you're coming from. Here in Oregon I pay $1,200 for a 45' slip. Except that's the YEARLY rate! Mexico marinas have gotten pretty pricey the last few years, I just don't agree with you about good deals there any more and the quality of work can be very good and very bad, flip a coin; of course that can be said about almost anywhere too. Sad to say.

Still pressed for time.

More later.

Regards,

Thomas

I have 3 stars and a boat - that makes me a Vice Admiral. I like being Admiral of Vice, but when I had two stars, I was a Rear Admiral.

Sa-weet!

In my experience, women in 3rd world countries are compliant due to social norms and/or poverty. American men are seen as a way out.

Compliant women are boring; cooperative, collaborative women are HOT.

Ah so, I know that place from google maps. 10 miles so. of Loreto. I wish they'd date their satellite photos. In the Gmaps sat. view, the marina is barely started and there is no name on the place. I'll be passing thru there in a few weeks, the gods willing and the tropical storm don't rise.

2 stars was NOT boring - I LOVED being Admiral of the Rear, especially at inspection formations.

HI

Im not new to here as have been a reader for a long time, but was wondering, do soulmates exsist? are they real,or just ideas that we tell ourselves to try and make us believe that love is or can be real? The media drives so much these days its hard to know what is real and what is not??

i ignore media. totally. except for what i get online. and i read real books, not newspapers , no tv. radio is for music.
-- soulmates do exist-- i have known a few pairs...friends and relatives and strangers.
there HAS to be such thing as love--or our moms would have thrown all of us out.
