Before I left San Diego I had contemplated having Si Bon waxed. Si Bon had a few scuff marks here and there, both from all the work she had done and from the skipper occasionally brushing up against the dock. I had a couple of estimates that were $420-$600. At the time I was feeling maxed out on spending and decided that a scuffed up boat wasn't all that bad when cruising in a third world country. Well add 4 months of cruising, an anchor snubber rubbing against the side, more docking and somewhere around 1,500 miles and Si Bon was starting to look pretty grungy. Shortly after arriving in San Carlos A dude by the name of Jesus approached me, Jesus said that he would clean the boat, wax the boat down to the waterline and clean the stainless steel....all for $150 USD. This morning Jesus and his son Eduardo showed up at just before 0700, they worked all morning and finished just before noon. I'm gonna have to say that Si Bon didn't look this good the day I bought her...and when you think of all she's been through in the past year and a half...that's saying a lot.
Please say a prayer for the 7 fishermen still missing in the Sea of Cortez.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
Extra: I am currently in Banderas Bay (Puerto Vallarta area), where I will be spending the 2012 hurricane season at the beautiful Paradise Village Marina.
