Mazatlan to Punta de Mita

15 December 2011
Departed Marina Mazatlan at first light for a 27-hour overnight passage to Punta de Mita. We are buddy boating with "Risk Taker," who we met and buddy boated with across the Sea of Cortez. Good boat, good people! And look at that Solar Stik. And that Manson anchor! Obviously excellent taste in gear. Rebecca recommended this photo of them and the full moon. Not much wind in route but calm sea state - and good conditions for a 2:30 a.m. engine belt change whilst underway. "That was record time," said Duane on "Risk Taker," and that's a compliment, because I know he's a bit of a wrench turner. By the way, I won't be telling this one on the VHF net - but long story short, we motored 168 miles with a bag taped on the prop. Boy, our fuel consumption and drive shaft vibration has improved immensely since I whacked it off with a knife offshore in Banderas Bay. Yeah, I'll be telling that one on myself for a while.
