Thanks, all....

Here's a nice collage of some pictures that our hosts took coming down the Baja, and at Isla Isabella in the Sea of Cortez. Frigate Bird and Booby chicks plus the obvious.

Very Nice images

Kinda helps to melt away the winter blues, Thanks! ... I do have to wonder what kind of radar plot that boat in your 4th image gets...

Good Eye! Actually didn't notice that until the dinghy ride back... though it is a gimballed mount it was skewed about 10deg to stbd too. Up the mast to find that a weld had failed on one side of the mount. We lashed it back on center and they are hoping to find a good SS welder somewhere soon.
