We intend staying here in Ensenada for quite awhile. Not sure of our plans after that. Repair wise in Tahsis before we left consisted of repairing the hull oursleves. My husband put an achor from the main mast out to lean the boat over on her side in the water so he could seal the crack up with apoxcy, then cement over top. Rebuilt our broken gunnels also with cement. Thank goodness we are a ferro boat (nice and solid and easy to repair). He also made up new engine mounts and re-aligned the engine up. Replaced our front stay. These were the major repairs we did to enable us to head south to Mexico. Doing these without haulout facilities was trying to say the least. Unfortunately our engine siezed on the way down possibly due to all the sea water when we flooded being towed in, and then it sitting for those few months we had to return to Australia. It worked fine (a bit smokey) as we left, motoring down the inlet but died shortly after.
This made us change our plans and not stop anywhere en route as we were litterally sail only. So we made a bee line to Ensenada approx 160nm off shore all the way down. 43 days was a little longer than we had planned. It amazed me how many times we were becalmed.
Nice to know someone was interested.
