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

And they're here!

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!
