Seven Grand Canyons in size; this is the land of the famous Tarrahumarra runners. We took the Chepe Express train to Divisidero and spent 4 days in the area.

Leaving Just Lucky in San Carlos for the Summer

Lot's of work to get the boat ready to store in the yard for the long hot season. When we asked them to sand the bottom ready for paint; they ran a moisture meter over the hull and it came back wet. We ended up getting a new epoxy barrier coat. Should be good now for the life of the boat.
