The Dock Six Sunset Party

07 January 2009 | Mazatlan
Allan
Almost every day the long term cruisers who inhabit dock six at Marina Mazatlan gather at the dock boxes for an impromptu sunset party. Anchored by Mike and Julie from Slacker, who bring out their beach chairs, books and a brew after a long day working on their boat, they are soon joined by Bill, Rick, Justin, Dalia and the newly arrived such as ourselves. Each has a great story and background...Mike and Julie commuter cruise every year, down from San Diego - 6 months working, 6 months cruising, although this year they are staying mostly here doing some major refitting of Slacker. Bill and Rick run thriving boat related businesses, and in Rick's case, is completely revamping Olympia, a 52 foot Hallberg Rassy that sank at the dock about 2 weeks ago due to a plug failing on their knotmeter thruhull... ouch! We met Justin upon our arrival before Christmas, a twenty-something Linux coder from Montreal who purchased a 37 foot fixer-upper to sail for year. He has since been joined by his wife Dalia.

Tuesday nights are pizza night... all you can eat for 45 pesos. The dock box table cloths come out, with a candle or two and it's standing room only.

On saturday's there is a great swap meet at the clubhouse, where Rina and I lightened our load by selling the suitcase we brought a bunch of boat supplies back from California, old dvd player, an under-used stair stepper (we get plenty of exercise walking, biking, kayaking!) and other assorted stuff. It's also a great social scene and we met the crew of Andanzas, who were the "other" Gilligan crew at the HaHa costume party in October.

We're going to miss Mazatlan. The relaxed atmosphere, benign weather and friendly locals really made it special.
