12/01/2011, Golf Coarse Mazatlan
Well I had a great breakfast along with a bloody Mary on the way to the airport what a great way to end my part of the trip at this beautiful location. Fred says he wants to come back and play some golf and he really enjoyed the ride through town with all the construction and detours ha you know I'm kidding. I think it was worth the ride. Much thanks to Fred and Jeanette for making this a wonderful time for me it was great to be part of their crew. I wish Fred and Jeanette a safe and fun time as they continue their adventure. Darwin
Marsha Dee dries outCapt. Crabby
11/29/2011, Boat yard, Mazatlan
Well, yesterday, Marsha Dee got hauled out for her new paint job. I still haven't decided what color to paint her. I was originally considering black, but everyone's talking me out of it because of heat, upkeep, and it costs more.. We're now considering gray or white with a colored stripe below the rub rail. Anyone have any ideas? I still have a few days before I have to decide.
On dry landCapt. Crabby,
11/26/2011, Torres timeshare, on the beach
Well, we're starting our stay on dry land. Yesterday, we moved from the boat to a nice timeshare on the beach, just north of the zona Dorada, very quiet and peaceful. Darwin decided to stay on the boat last night, I think he'd had enough of us! He'll be joining us today until he leaves next Wednesday. We're really going to miss him, he's been a BIG help, and a very pleasant companion. Thanks, Darwin.
Just a quickie, I posted a couple of entries between San Jose and Mzt on the sat phone, but apparently they didn't go through.
Before mazatlan we had spent a few days in Los Frailes. It was a bit of a rough ride part way up there as the wind started to blow straight on our nose.The boat did great and handled things just fine just a little slow at times 3.5 to 4 knts. The anchorage was just great smooth and calm with beautiful beaches and some of the best swimming and snorkaling ever. However there was no bar or resturant here we will have plenty of that in Mazatlan. Left Frailes at 5am saturday and got to Mazatlan about 10am Sunday.
