Gabriellas grandpa
I left Santa Rosalia about noon so I could try and sail the entire distance to San Carlos. I did sail a lot, but when I got down to 2 knots I fired up my trusty engine....the one with very clean oil in it. I arrived at daylight and anchored in the bay among 50 or so other boats that were mostly on mooring balls. I discovered a nice little coffee/pastry shop in the marina that had free wifi and very good ice cream(maple-nut). Took the bus into Guaymas tp check out where I might haul out for the summer. I went to the new Singlar marina and haulout facility to get quotes for storage and then took the bus around the bay to Marina-Seca Guaymas to check them out. It was not that tough of a decision. M-S Guaymas was a dirt yard next door to a shrimp boat yard that had dust clouds of metal sandings floating around and the water and electric hookups were suspect. So, for $400 difference in the whole summer season storage I choose Singular. It is a state of the art facility within walking distance of downtown and restaurants and the amenities are quite nice. For piece of mind and security of the boat while gone swimming with my Princess for the summer, it's worth it. I will sail over to Guaymas bay this thursday to anchor out and prep the boat for haulout on Friday. I think Im getting a little too anxious about reuniting with Gabriella.....oh yeah, and her parents.
