Well, I haven't posted in a long time. I am now in Mazatlan. The fun is still going on, day by day. Warm air, sunshine, cheap
chow, extra beauty from the time you get up to the time you go to sleep.
On the crossing, with a never been boating
before young Quebecois couple, they learned a lot. Steering
by hand day and night by compass
, sail trim, motoring, anchoring
and how to lose and engine
and a $3K US Brand new spinnaker
. But that is cruising, and that is life.
There are so many people in La Paz
trying to get to here, I just couldn't leave all of them stranded. They are on bikes and hiking and??? But from all walks of life and countries.
So here I am in Mazatlan, waiting for my heat exchanger
to be diagnosed and ????
At the south Anchorage, with about 5 more days of water
I hope to be leaving here in a week or so and heading south to ? I don't know, but I will, and I will sail most of the time. I have put over 900 hours on my engine since I left Washington
in May and went the inside passage
to Skagway Alaska
. What a ride it has been, and it is still going.
Like they say ' Cruising is working and fixing your boat in exotic locations'.
I am sitting here, with my laptop
in a place called, 'Club Nautico', it was a great place 20 years or so ago. Now it is a dingy dock
with LOTS of character. Cold beer
, nice war breeze, and Wi-Fi.
Anyone down this way give me a holler, and if you want to go for a sail, give me a holler too.
