Gabriellas G-Pa
I left early this year so I could get the boat in the water and make tracks for Barra De Navidad. I have lots of work to do in Paradise and timing is important. I drove straight through to Nogales, Arizona in one day and left the next morning for the border crossing. This year I didn't lose skeep over the border crossing like in years past. The only thing I was bringing across that they could've dinged me oon is the large amount of house paint...about 45 gallons. Both inspection stations gave me a green light and I was on my way. The boat was in amazingly good condition minus the heavy coating of dirt. I refurbished all 8 of my 6 volt golf cart batteries with the Epsom salts and distilled water treatment and it came out great so far. Then I painted the bottom of the boat and put Gabriellas name on the outside of the port ama and her school and mascot name on the starboard ama. Tomorrow morning I splash and will probably take another week of tricking the boat matter how much I try to trick it out it still looks like a clunker......sorry Mannasea. Then I shall make a beeline for Barra and take the bus back to Guaymas to pick up my car and drive it back to Barra.....THIS WILL BE MY LAST VOLUNTEERISM stuff for the southland. I want to be a full time laid back cruiser.
