so we stuck here a tad more time as we have experienced some fun not anticipated, per norm. trying to make mazatlan this fall/winter season.
the search for filters and water separators brought us to casa de pescadores, the local fishermans store and chandlery in manzanillo, wherein there are sooomany things my boat is now demanding. oops
anyway, as we repair we reinforced our learning that there is more to repair before it is done, and might as well fix entire thing than bandaid it together 12 times..
i figgered there is a system by system replacement statute of limitations. but, boats the age of mine–damnear 40 yrs old, need all systems completely replaced. ok we will do that.
so, as we await departure for mazatlan from here, we fixing more than we figgered to fix here.. the mizzen boom is high on the list so i can actually sail jib n jigger to maz with some machinery accompaniment, rather than the other way around. much preferable
and so dad went into skilled nursing care section of their old folks’ place, just around 3rd or 4th, birthday time. was too busy being frauded out of the contents of my bank card, which has been very flustrating.
Never ever buy anything with a card at home depot or walmart. gggrrr
new card is on its way and life is good. bank investigating the fraud, spozed to get the money back that was stolen from my account via my card numbers.
crossing fingers as i typo…
