Fuel delivery

Hi there!
Just wondering if anybody has been able to arrange for fuel to be brought out to them while cruising offshore Mexico?
Any info you have would be appreciated.

Re: Fuel delivery

I have heard of this in various places. There is usually a minimum number of gallons so you may need to pool the fule to several boats.

Re: Fuel delivery

You say offshore. Do you mean offshore like out in the ocean not cleared in to Mexico or offshore like in a harbor but not at a marina or tied to dock somewhere/
The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean.
