After 2 months the boat bottom is complete with 12 coats of assorted epoxies, primer a
nd bottom paint. We flew to San Diego and brought special paint and expoxies back with us across the Mexico border and down to La Paz taking 6 days and having lots of fun visiting the coastal towns along the way. It was a beautiful drive with no problems or hassels along the way. I really don't know why people are so reluctant to drive here in Mexico. It isn't the US for sure but overall the roads weren't that bad and we never drove at night so we wouldn't hit a cow in the road. The hotels averaged $25 a night and dinners $10 for the both of us. There are some gorgeous bays along the way we hope to visit with the boat.
