zeehag is on a distinguished road
sailing south from ensenada to mazatlan was fun and at some points wild ride--- winds off cabo were 60 kts from nw-- wow-- we used only reefed jib n mizzensails and clocked 8 kts!!! cooking was less than optimal and i kept spilling the coffee everywhere..LOL... but got it done and enjoyed the sailing---- arrived in mazatlan with 3 gallons of diesel remaining in tank, and broken alternator mount bolts..LOL... jury rigging ddoes work. will prolly go to marina mazatlan for hurrycame season, at his point as i can get repairs done effectively there.
my only complaint, if that--is not being able to catch a dorado(or anything) between cabo and mazatlan-- winds disappeared and fishies were hiding under glassy seas.
