Back to Marina Mazatlan

Snowaway ready We worked hard for the last 5 days getting Snowaway ready to go back into the water. The main job was having her bottom sanded and painted by Total Yacht Works. There was enough paint for 3 coats so we were happy about that. If all goes well, we will not have to have Snowaway hauled next year which will make it easier to get ready at the start of next season. Other jobs we did were: installed new wind instruments, recaulked the refrigerator and kitchen sink, cleaned and painted the anchor locker and put on new primary chain (we now have 250 ft of chain on our primary anchor), serviced the outboard engine, cleaned the stainless on the dodger and bimini, installed a helifan in the rear head, replaced all zincs, and of course general cleaning…

mar_sol While Snowaway was on the hard we stayed at Bungalows Mar-Sol, a short bus ride away. It was so nice to leave the boat and go to an clean, tidy room! We stayed in room 3 for a few nights but we found the street noise too much to allow us to have a good sleep. maz_street We asked to move and we were put near the back and had a great view of a typical Mazatlan residential street. We also had great sleeps there.

We were put back into the water at 16:50 on December 16th, the staff ends work at 17:00 so they were in a bit of a hurry.

But all went well and we enjoyed watching the cormorants heading back from their feeding grounds…
