Time for the semi-annual thread bump.  We'll see if the thread sticks around for another 10 years.  

Remember... TEAMWORK!

Happy Holidays!

I guess this is the annual thread bump.  

Happy Holidays everyone!

Happy Holidays everyone.  Just another semi-annual check in.  I sold my Dana 24 and bought a Valiant 40 in Mexico.    Bashing back up Baja soon, I hope!

That’s awesome KD!  Make sure you get a Baja filter for your fuel.  Also, Ernesto in Turtle Bay (The fuel guy) REALLY enjoys porno mags so get some value packs before you depart.

Is Ernesto the gentleman I've heard referred to as "Boss Hogg"?      I've heard from several that Isla de Cedros is a better stop for fuel.

Not sure.   It could very well be that Isla de cedros is better these days, and I would certainly take more recent knowledge over mine which dates back to 2004 or so.

The boat looks beautiful, and everything tied down and ready to go...did you find it like this? Or, make it like this? Or, arrange for the work to be done like this in Mehico?

Keeldragger V finished the Baja Bash last weekend.  I hired a delivery captain and crew since I could not take all of the time off.  Managed to join in for the first and last legs: appx 200 miles out of the ~1000 mile journey.    First leg was from La Paz to San Jose Del Cabo.  Next window was to Bahia Santa Margarita, then to Isla de Cedros.  Plan was to go from Cedros directly to San Diego, but the weather window was only good to Ensenada.  Ensenada to San Diego to San Pedro to finish the journey.

While the boat has been well-maintained, I was a little nervous about the possibility of a mechanical issue coming up along the way.  She has a Volvo Penta 2003T with over 5K hours.  A couple of minor issues came up.  The raw water pump sprung a bad leak between La Paz and San Jose del Cabo.  Had a spare on board (spare is weeping and looks to need a rebuild as well).  The starter motor failed to engage at Ensenada.  Delivery captain and mechanic were able to get her started by banging with a hammer.   I met captain and crew at the CBP dock in San Diego.  We left the engine running during check in as well as during inspection at marina in San Pedro.  Good plan--she won't start now but she made it to her slip.   First project:  replace the starter motor.

I have a new appreciation for keeping a full stock of spares onboard.
