Yes, it's fresh water washdown for this salty boat. We had taken on alot of spray from waves in the first day, leaving enough salt to spice a year's worth of meals! Fresh water and soap is the cure for salt! Of course we needed to top off the fuel, the drinking water, the propane for cooking, and the laundry. Deitmar introduced us to Luis who had helped them from trips into town for supplies, to taking excursions into the hinterlands, including coffee plantations, cocoa plantations, Mayan ruins and so on (which we hope to enjoy soon). We have also planned to lift Julia Max out of the water long enough to sand and paint a few areas where we had scratched the hull removing some paint below the waterline, and replacing some flaking paint near our SSB radio ground under the waterline. At most this should take two hours to lift, repair/paint, and re-float her in the water. This will be on Friday morning. By the way, Marina Chiapas was hit by a tsunami last September. They have virtually finished repairing all the damage with new docks, electrical, water pipes, etc. Very impressive considering how extensive the damage was. The tsunami was caused by the earthquakes that hit the State of Chiapas, and felt in Mexico City if you recall.
