Back at Anchor in La Pause

Capt Rich
According to our GPS Chart plotter, we dropped our 60lb Drag-Q-R anchor in the La Paz Bay in the exact same spot that we pulled it to leave about 5 months ago. We love and trust our 100lb manson supreme anchor to hold us firmly in place where our secondary 60lb CQR just looks like a toy dingy anchor in comparison when hanging on the bow of this monster boat. But more scary than using our CQR anchor is using our secondary rode of all 3/4" nylon with only 15ft of 1/2" chain on the end! It looks like a piece of dental floss holding our boat in place and you can see the uneasy looks we are getting from the anchored boats around us.

We have been using our secondary anchor and rode since we left Barra de Navidad. The reason we are using our secondary anchor and rode is that we are preparing on sending our 300ft of 1/2 chain up to Mexicali to be re-galvanized. Our friends on SV Just a Minute just had their chain re-galvanized and after two years of full time anchoring, our chain is a complete rusty mess flinging rust on me and everything around when we deploy and retrieve our anchor.

The other major project about to start here in La Paz is having Diego start stripping the teak in our upper Salon. He did such a great job on our exterior teak, we decided to turn him loose on the boat interior. Just how far he gets will be determined by our eventual La Paz departure date for San Diego, sometime in July. I have some other projects that need to be done before the 1000nm trip affectionately known as "the Baja Bash", like rebuilding the helm hydrolic pump, re-working our main engine fuel system, tighten the rudder packing, repair the torn mainsail, and tighten the forestay. Not really too much to worry about going in, it's the new projects you FIND while working on the other ones that you always worry about on a boat!
