ok so we actually made it to mazatlan from barra. boat sed whew and refused to do much else.
towed into marina mazatlan from isla marina, where i spent a month before mazatlan marina, we hunkered down , hell its summer, nothing happens no one goes anywhere-- except the dock gangway needed replacement. it was sad and sick, ok so dock 6 closed for about a week. i went to another slip on a different dock under my own power, which seems to have been a miracle, as my transmission and my fuel pump and some thing else, i know it, is always 3, failed.
ok. is why gods made martin, who towed boats for marina mazatlan for 15 years.
ok so i went to find him, as he is always early and always can use the dough.
oops they fired his awesome hard working ass in favor of new guys who donot tow
ok. damn.
my boat HATES musical marina slips. lil fat bottomed bitch hunkered down and refuses to leave. transmission.
ok
packing gland
ok
fuel pump
ok
now the frikkingbludidamn starter. :bu: (glad i had spare rewired in barra by chebio in cihuatlan....)
whoa.
so the pressure is on, as marina wants me back in my own slip and i want me back in my own slip so i can re hunker down for summer, and boat says ***** you, and ..... something about a donkey, but i think that was in chinese.
i hope everyone else is having fun and smooth sailing!~~~

much longer i will take painter in my teeth and tow her by swimming. is only 1 dock away, mebbe 1/4 mile , max. or rowboat...

:beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

managed return to slip then a cane decided to pass closely--newton--so i moved into a 2 finger slip--oh, but--
-ha ha ha ha ha - we had to move via long lines as the fuel tank is filled with bilge water.. ohkaaaayyyyyy....luckily that didnt get into engine, only as far as racor 500 fg. whew. and so ever so s l o w l y we progress with tank emptying then replacement and such.,

oh yeah we been given permission ha ha ha ha ha by dockmaster, as opposed to the surly disrespectful receptionist to get into my e dock slip of choice. now to see if we are actually going to be granted a special winter rate fro long term stay or if we same as everyone else.

ok so we solved the issue of apparent bilgewaterin tankage-- was prolly th e deck fitting requiring an new seal. ok we got that. .. waiting on new tank and plumbing for that then we move to the isolated dock i like best..
found a new mizzen of aluminum tree 40 ft, now need spartite, something i never considered using until the change in shape from square to oval......hee hee hee and i will have ipe/perota wood spreaders both masts and horizontal spars when complete...hahahaha.
i love the look they give my boat. ipe is plentiful here and beautiful and very inexpensive....
life rocks, repairs are slow to effect, and bubba is aging but awesome. ...
