Bienvenidos a Mexico! Liberte is happily lounging at Marina Coral, after a day of clearing in boat and crew at the excellent facility here. Our agent with the hotel handled all the dealings and they took fantastic care of us. It's a highly recommended way to enter the country. Also, the gym, swimming pool and hot tub under the stars are mighty civilized.
A word about our route and communications: We plan to depart here tomorrow mid-afternoon, bound for two days underway to Turtle Bay, a remote village roughly halfway down the Pacific outside of the Baja. I've filed a float plan with Gartly Curtis, and will be in touch with Gartly enroute.
While we are cruising in Mexico, there are several ways to reach us. The best is e-mail, which we will be checking at regular intervals throughout our trip. We would love to hear from you at the following gmail addresses: rebeccakilmer and captaindavidkilmer. Our cell phones are on a Mexican plan and work in many places: Rebecca's cell 208.699.2789 and Dave's cell 208.699.2761. We'll want to talk fast! We also have a satellite phone on board, and that number is 881 651 455 988. This phone is not always turned on, but you may be able to leave a message. It's spendy to call. The sat phone is programmed with our Dr. Mary Duff, and the emergency numbers for the US and Mexican coast guards.
We would love to hear from you by e-mail, and we've enjoyed the many well wishes and Bon Voyage message we've received so far.
Que te vaya bueno!
Capt. Dave and crew
