12 February 2009 | Puerto Vallarta, MX
George/Sunny 85 degrees
The 'To Do' List continues to drive our days. Sue just completed 'chaps' for our dinghy - quite a task, but she definitely can be proud. The chaps protect against UV's in the tropical sun. I spent a couple days hanging around our masts and rigging cleaning everything with white vinegar which handles dirt/salt/oils. Also checked fittings for damage: found a missing rivet, some deteriorated chafe protection, and a loose spreader light. Inside I am tightening all fasteners, wiring and any thing else that can be chafed from the vibration of an ocean crossing.
At end of day, we get to swim at the Paradise Village pool. Nice to be able to relax a little.
