Before and after of our new-to-us 1984 Irwin 65 “Blue Pearl”. She’s still a work in progress and we’ve only been in the water a few weeks here in La Paz, but we’re excited for the new adventures ahead!
We’ve been recording every step of the way and sharing it on YouTube / Sailing Blue Pearl 🥰
has anyone made the passage from La Paz Mexico, down through the Panama Canal and then up to the Florida Keys?
Legs? Good stopping and provisioning points? How long? Best time of year to set sail. Being from Florida have never sailed the Pacific or been through Panama?

There are lots of pictures and videos. I'm particularly proud of the whale shark video. I've never been that close to a whale shark...
I'll be heading south along Baja and into Sea of Cortez in a couple of weeks.
Plan on using La Paz as my home base while commuter cruising.
"Marina La Paz" is full. Costa Baja and Palmira have slips available, but both are outside of town.
Any recommendations & experiences with these two...
