Life is good!

6.3knots dead down wind with the parasailor. 88F with 65%RH. 


Whales 15 feet off the beam have stinky breath. 
We are in route to Santa Rosalita after an expensive evening on a dock washing off salt, salt and more salt. We also turned on the AC because 95+. 

Carolines phone has a tan line. 

He sun in Mexico is pretty intense. Caroline’s phone lives in a lifeproof case. The case has a clear section in the back to show off the Apple logo. 

We just changed the sun-damaged case out for a new one. 


Note the square tan line around the Apple symbol. 

Yes, that is a Telcel SIM taped to the phone. 

Caroline and India run everything

The entire boat is set up so India and Caroline can run everything when my job takes me someplace crazy. 

We got a super lightweight dinghy so they can move it. (Of course they have never had to because there have always been SeaGlass boys nearby).

The winches are oversized and the anchor is double stout. 

We even bought a generator after making darn sure Caroline and India could lift it. We store this generator in one of the engine compartments. 

This morning Caroline wanted to make water and do laundry. The latter requires the generator. Caroline went to lift the genset out of the engine compartment and could not get it up and out. I asked India to help without looking as I want the girls to be self sufficient. 

After lots of grunting I got up to take a look at India doing an awesome squat workout with no success. 

Me: Take the bungle cord off the generator and it’ll lift out.

The girls: glares back at me. 

We were making water a short while later. 

The Baja HaHa

After a month in San Diego we are now on the Baja Ha Ha with over 180 other boats of all types. 
We now have an extra crew member Paul from he Three-Quarter Time. He is another Fairbanks-ian. 




We now have a 40 Gallon Per Hour watermaker as well. As soon as we get solar panels we should be completely self sufficient outside of food.
