What's Happening

Well it has been a little over a month since getting back to the boat. We had the boat hauled and bottom painted. The paint was getting a little thin, since it was last done two years ago. It was painted shark white and is so bright the diver is going to need to wear sunglasses when cleaning the bottom. Our outboard is waiting for parts, and we had the Honda generator serviced by Honda for about $26 Canadian including parts. All else seems to be working fine.

A lot of news both correct and incorrect on the issue with boats being impounded ,but is causing a lot of visits to get a new Temporary Import Document. In Mazatlan it is 20 minutes and about $750 pesos. From some of the current emails it seems that progress is being made but when dealing with government processes in any country it can take time and be very frustrating.

Just to make sure we still know how to sail the boat we spent today sailing off the Mazatlan waterfront. The weather is in the 25 degree range and much warmer then in the past two years. Some are even complaining it is to hot.

And in conclusion Lynn's golf game still sucks.
