Welcome to our mid-life crisis! These are the chronicles of Laura and Patrick, their young son Jack, and their goofball Labrador Retriever named Evinrude (Rudy), as they travelled the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific coast of mainland Mexico in their catamaran. We went cruising in search of a change of pace, a closer knit family, and peace of mind. We found all three and more. The fun all started in October, 2008 and nearly four years later the Mexican adventure came to an end August 3rd, 2012. With our mid-life crisis cured in Mexico, we are excited to start a new adventure - life back in America.

Patrick has since joined the Sales Team of Marine Servicenter as a boat broker. Whether you are looking to make your dream of sailing away come true, or ready to sell your boat he can help. He can be reached at http://marinesc.com/about/crew/patrick-harrigan

To Mazatlan

Good Morning!
Today is a fine and beautiful day which is perfect! We are casting off our lines and leaving La Paz today, almost one month and one week after we had originally planned. But we are ready now. I am feeling good, the boat now has operating solar panels and a platform, the wind storm has abated, and Rudy has vomited up the entire tamale with corn husk that he stole about two days ago. Our hearts our filled with joy
Sergio and his gang did a fabulous job custom building and installing a stainless steel arch over the stern of our boat. It provides multiple uses - solar panel platform, kayak storage, and dinghy engine support. We are really happy with it.
So keep us in our thoughts, we are about to become sailors instead of barnacles.
Laura, Patrick, Jack and Rudy
