I finally started in earnest to repair the big whale bite in my starboard ama. I cut all the ribs(stringers) and epoxied and put fasteners in place. Tomorrow, I will put the deck pieces on and start putting the fairing epoxy on. I thought I as going to be out of here on the day after New Years, but being in Mexico, I'm starting to catch the "manana attitude". Work for a couple of hours then relax because the day is starting to warm up and I don't want to sweat too much. I also got my carburetor on my four stroke outboard cleaned from an outboard mechanic for 12 bucks and reinstalled that today. Also, I went to the fuel dock and filled all four of my gerry jugs so I can run the generator and my outboard. On top of all that, I dropped off my laundry this morning and picked it up at 3pm at a cost of 5 dollars for 5 kilos of laundry..washed, folded, and packaged. Whew..I'm tired. Finally got good fast wifi for 90 pesos($9) for 24 hours of service that has to be used within one week. I had breakfast(eggs benedict again) yesterday at the golf course club house that looks like a mansion. This morning I had french toast and bacon at the Sands Hotel where we tie up our dinghys...so thats 2 breakfasts ashore in a row....I have to get back to my cereal now that I got the local tienda to order 2% milk for me and he came through. Barra is really crowded with mostly Mexican tourists for the Holiday season. This is like a mini version of Santa Cruz. The picture gallery is off line for repairs and should be back up by Monday so I can post a lot more photos. I might leave for Manzanillo and points south this Thursday or Saturday....its supposedly bad luck to leave for a new destination on Fridays.
