I think this was one of the truly stressful launches that I have ever had. The boat went down into the water and I studied the glass bottom for about five minutes and to my wonderful surprise not a drop of water anywhere........ Then I went over to the fuel dock where I will stay for awhile to finish painting my decks. Heres a little story that had a few people laughing at and with me. After I docked the boat, I went over to the office to harass Ariana and Marlene and tell them how thrilled I was to not have a leak in the glass bottom. Then, as I was strolling back to the boat I was looking for my mast top visible over the huge Pemex fuel tanks. Horacio and Lalo were chatting by the tanks and seen the concern on my face as I was looking for my mast top and couldn't see it. Going through my mind was that the glass bottom sucked in and the boat was on the bottom. Then as I rounded the corner and saw that there was no mast on the boat(it's still laying in the yard waiting for me to paint it) I turned to Horacio and said I was looking for the mast and he knew it was in the yard.....Horacio and Lalo laughed so hard and had to tell everyone how old and senile I am.
I just finished painting the top of the house and tomorrow will do the decks. It takes almost a day to tape and cut the radius on the tape. Then I will anchor out while I work on the mast. Susan, Walmart is just another place to get bargains and the locals have a few more items here so they don't have to drive to Hermosillo. Plenty of turkeys at all the stores and I just put up the sign up sheet for Thanksgiving.
