Coming back to boat failures
14 December 2019 | Ensenada
Scott and Donna Hansen | fair, did have 3 rain/wind squalls since being here
We came on a Monday and the next Sunday we got on our bikes to find a church we heard about. It meant biking 3 miles, which normally I could do but it was super-hot, we didn't bring water and we started to climb hills. I sprained my ankle less than a month ago, but it was doing ok, although numerous times getting on and off the bike wasn't the best for it. Then the GPS was sending us the wrong way, so we finally turned around and came back to the boat. I had been using my phone for the map feature and when I got off the bike, I gathered up my things and placed them on the deck. THEN I heard a plunk and the phone was gone. So, we bought a Mexican phone for $66 but unfortunately left the hotspot on overnight and woke up to a warning that we had used over 2G from 11pm to 7am when we were FAST asleep. We complained to the Telcel company but it was not their problem....
We also had a soap container and a bleach bottle leak into a bilge, our water foot pump rotted away in the bathroom and our coffee pot tipped over due to a broken post on the stove top, so our week has been eventful!! But we love the marina, the friends, the almost sunny weather, having our bikes to get around faster, and being in a marina when those winds kick up!!
The picture shows part of our 6-month growth on the bottom. I scraped from the dock, Scott used the hookah to stay down and scrape off the prop and rudder so we could at least sail slowly to the yard to have the bottom repainted.
