ok kids-i am in ensenada now–i am on my way to mazatlan sailing my solitary bird, a 41 f ormosa ketch with my boatkat and my self and occasional crew. crew is nice on long passages to share the work of sailing a big boat.
there is a yard in mazatlan i plan to use to haul my boat, and i have friends there to welcome me into their neighborhood.
i will add pictures as my internet services allow– i am using wifi here in mazatlan. my boat is in a quaint lil marina called juanitos boats. i was ging to sail straight thru to mazatlan, but on eof my crew developed a case of mal de mer from the underworld– so , a she was looking paler and paler and not so spifff, i ran into ensenada for a couple of days. now port is closed for high winds and i am stuck for a minuet. i will leave after this front leaves us. i was hoping to use th e prefrontal winds to get us out and farther into mexico than ensenada, but , as we say, stuff happens.
my crew saw whales–grey whales migrating north, and we saw dolphins and was awesome!!!!!

Been following your adventure on CF and left you a PM just a while ago. If your need some crew and can stay a couple of days in Ensenada my wife and I may be able to fly down and crew to Mazatlan. Let me know.
The GPS tracking works great, sorry about the crew getting sea sick, Patsy is doing fine and I’m keeping her up to date on your sailing to Mazatlan. She says hi and is with you.
I have been reading David’s blogs and feel as if I’ve always known him, he has a great talent for conveying his experiences while sailing (a fine young man) full of life.
Karen know this!! you are sailing for all of us who for one reason or another are still stuck at anchor. We are with and support you, GO GIRL GO.
