Yesterday we found out that our parts are here in Mazatlan! We are scheduled to be hauled out Monday morning. The repairs are supposed to take two days. We have struggled to come up with the best solution for where our family will live during the time the boat is in Malvina's boatyard. Having Rudy to accommodate adds many issues. We've decided the best solution is to stay on the boat in the yard with Rudy. Since the boatyard is a giant, desolate dust bowl, we will come back to El Cid for a couple days when we're all put back together, just to get cleaned up, provisioned and on our way south. Yippee!
