San Blas to Chacala

Taisho is out early (6am) but it's pretty low for us still and we have to go over to the marina to take on water. We waited until 9ish and hailed Crescendo to let him know we were coming (as we were unable to hail the marina). We pulled in and got water, washed off the boat and Jim went to get a 5 gallon jug of water. We visited with Crescendo for a bit and then left.

It was a very nice motoring day to Chacala, sunny but no winds. Charts and GPS are not correct for this area (as it shows us on land and we haven't anchored yet).

We tried to hail port captain with no reply. 5 minutes after anchoring Jim is diving in the water! It's a nice clean bay and the water is really nice! So we swim for a bit before night falls and relax the rest of the evening.

Though the boating community wishes he'd stick with Phil (there's too many Jim's and we haven't met one [...]
