Baja Rally Update
April 1 (Last call for Rally shirt orders)
Gato Loco’s crazy crew after a perfect day of sailing. Weather continues to be ideal for day sailing and would have been perfect for the first day of the upcoming leg 1 to Puerto Lobos. This might have been our last chance to get out day sailing since we hauled out yesterday for bottom maintenance and some minor repairs.
Gato Loco is pretty light duty for the Penasco travel lift which hauls huge steel shrimp boats on a regular basis.
Inspection of the bottom only showed a minor keel ding inflected right here in the Penasco harbor entrance. It’s been 3 years since the last haul. The old bottom paint still looks pretty good except for the water lines where cleaning as totally removed the paint. A new bottom paint job after some minor repairs plus lots of TLC and we will be ready for the 2014 season. We should be back in the water within a week.
