October 19th to October 24th, 2008 MAZATLAN, SINGLAR MARINA

Passat II on the hard in Mazatlan. This was an "all work and all play" stop (The Mexicans working and yours truly and Sandra playing in the air conditioned cruiser's lounge and swimming pool).
We stoped to repaint the bottom and replace the exhaust elbow that developed a leak. We used separate paint for the rudders as the wind steering gear is partly aluminium and needs a special paint. The main rudder got the special paint as we were running short of the bottom paint for the hull.
The exhaust elbow was replaced at a very reasonable cost, but more on that later (foreshadowing...).
