Christmas 2014

For months prior to the December holiday period we were living at Svendsen's boat yard, it was nice to get home in December and Monica was anxious to get SeaGlub dressed up for the occasion.

New Max-Prop

So after much research we decided to go with the Max-Prop.  You can find all kinds of reasons to pick one or the other, but after we had made the decision to go with a feathering or folding prop, we came to the Max-Prop primarily based on retention of power in reverse.

Entering Mexico 101 - Thanks Malabar!


Arriving and Checking into Ensenada for First Timers



Hello all! The following is as much information as I can give about our experience arriving in and checking into Ensenada. Might not be too thrilling for all of my land lubber readers this week, but for those of you out there that are thinking of cruising or might be heading into Mexico by boat for the first time I hope that this helps! If you find it helpful please share it with other boaters! Thanks!!
