Last Day in Cabo
08 November 2008
Our last day at Cabo San Lucas was a busy one for me. We had a tear in the UV covering of the jib, so I borrowed a sewing machine from another boat and tried to make repairs. The sewing machine couldn't handle the material thickness near the tack of the sail. So I borrowed another one, this time a Sail Rite [tm]. Boy, is that a powerful machine. It sewed through the heavy material like butter. We brought along some scraps of the matching gray sunbrella fabric so we managed to make a very good looking repair.
I also found out, in the process of removing the jib, that the vectran pennant at the tack had worn to almost nothing. I made a new penannt out of three wraps of nylon line.
While I was up at the bow I found that one of the cotter rings for the lifelines had disappeared. So I replaced it, and checked and taped every cotter ring fitting on the boat.
After that there was the awards ceremony for the Baja Haha. We, along with everyone else, got a third place trophy. Afterwards we had dinner with friends Glenn & Rose at a great restaurant, Mama's Cantina I think it was.
