back in the water again...42 days on the hard

I know most of you couldn't stand to wait so I put the pictures in stairs getting wet backing down the doesn't look steep but believe me it is...nothing is hitting or breaking

Greg and Wayne on the top...I'm in the back...praying
We made it ...phew! Big event in the yard...everyone had their fingers yelling...
we are now on the dock in the water. All we came in for was a bottom paint job and somehow or other we ended up with new props and new back stairs. Go figure.

Stairs....white.....almost finished

We are almost there.....putting on non skid today....splashing back in tomorrow.....

Bimbo Bambino

I love these Bimbo team..... so I bought one for the Bambino....He'll probably only wear it once but what the heck...a grannie has to do what a grannie has to do. It cost all of 30 pesos...about $2.50 US. Oh, yeah, it came with shorts.

What I do while in the friggin hot boat yard????

One... of my favorite places to check out every morning....yummy donut holes with cream inside Mr. Jugo is right across the street...we haven't tried him yet because the bakery has good coffee.

My friend, Anna, gal on the right, has been my biker buddy for the past week or so. She has her boat in the yard too...we take off on errands and the guys work....perfect!

Comadres....where are you???

I miss my comadres.... I miss a great American Burger
I don't miss pot lucks because we have them every Sunday plus it means that I don't have to cook anything. I'll just make a salad and call it good!

My GF is leaving the yard

I cry, boo hoo, stamp my feet, wave good bye but nothing will deter Phil from leaving to visit with his Nieta, Gabriella. Lucky for us, he will be in Sacto and will be coming to Brisbane to paint the inside of Cap Cat. Then we can all get together with Eupsychia crew and Merry our first crew member, for a fiesta or a rousting sail on the Bay.

Sticky back stairs of Cap Cat

Guys are working alike crazy but we are probably only 1/2 completed. Next is the grinding, cough, cough, dust, dirt stage. El Viejo now has a nice rash over his body from all the fiberglass. Luckily we wear heavy duty masks and vacuum constantly. How many more days???????

Mannsea Phil and CC Wayne taking a well deserved break

Finding shade under the boat, Phil and Wayne try to down some water and cool off after working in the heat. oday they finished all the prepwork for the fiberglass guys. Thank goodness for Phil...tomorrow we are all going to have a massage at the new Singlar Massage center. Results to be announced tomorrow evening.

What gringos don't wear in Guaymas

I guess I should know this but why do most women wear long, tight pants when it is 90 degrees and 90 % humidity? At least they are not wearing high heels like the women in La Paz.

time out for shopping

We ran out of coffee and chocolate....yipes!

We are two wild and crazy gals!

Doreen, my friend from Scottish Mist in San Carlos, came over and picked me up for a girls day of shopping. We had ice cream cones for lunch and then went shopping for clothes. I managed to find a dress, a pair of pants and a top. A miracle for me! So much more fun to go shopping with a woman. I probably would have ended up buying epoxy if I went with the Capt!
This was the 4th store we checked out...we didn't stay too long as the air conditioning was not working. Plus, we couldn't find a bull whip to go with the hats.

Thursday, May 7, 2009 are tearing out the STAIRS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phil of Mannasea is helping the Capt tear out and repair the back stairs on Cap Cat.... not one but all 5 of them....aghhhhh on both sides of the boat...
lucky for me...Phil is keeping the Capt on track and he has a car so he can take me shopping too...Phil is my new GF.
