An addition to the fleetCapt. Crabby

Being a glutton for punishment, while still in Mexico, I completed the purchase of a Ranger 33 sailboat which was offered for sale by a Marina for unpaid slip fees. I need to thank Lee Pryor and Darwin Southard for their assistance in finding the boat and acquiring it.

Well, this isn't strictly sailing, but we're in Las Cruces, NM at Jeanette's daughter's house. We attended her grandson's high school graduation on Saturday, he was in the top 10% of his class and got several college scholarships, and are now getting ready to head back to So. Cal. tomorrow. On the way here, we drove through Tombstone, AZ and visited Boot Hill Cemetery-very cool.
Mazatlan and TeacapanCapt. Crabby

Well, we got into the marina on 4/30 after a couple of nights anchored at Deer Island. We had an exciting surf into the harbor entrance, "Endless Summer" caught a wave and surfed in, we were luckier, and just had large swells. From now on, it's early AM into Maz.
Jaltemba, Mantanchen & Stone IslandCapt. Crabby

Haven't updated for awhile because Banda Ancha wasn't working too well. We left La Cruz on 4-17, spent one night at Punta Mita & had dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant, the spent 3 nights in Jaltemba/Guayabitos. There are actually 3 towns there, Guayabitos, Jaltemba and Los Ayala. We visited all 3, had some great food and skewers of shrimp and Pacificos on the beach, and really enjoyed it. We anchored by La Pena island, which was quite smooth, but a long dinghy ride to the beach. Lee, I'm real glad I got that motor from you, it would have taken forever with the 2-horse.
Jeanette goes wild at HuanacaxtleCapt. Crabby
04/15/2012, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
Last night we decided to have a farewell dinner at the Huanacaxtle Cafe with Frank and Stephanie. They had a promo, if you bought 120 pesos worth of drinks, you got a free dinner. Of course, we had to go for it, so we were probably overserved with drinks. Anyhow, there was a really good band there, and after Jeanette's second Margarita, she started dancing with the waiter. I have photographic proof, herein appended.
