NoTE; I published this blog on the Mexico page by sheer habit. My blogging skills are lacking so that this is where it will remain, but I have re-posted a slightly revised version on the South Pacific page where it belongs under it's corrected date: 06/01/2017
This was the way this trip was going to play out. Get one thing fixed and 2 more things went wrong. Dois told me once when I first met him that he wasn’t very handy. He used the generator to start the engine and we got through the doldrum belt with an assist from our gimped up motor. 28 days after leaving San Diego, 28 days of breakages and storms and the wops, 28 days of lost sleep and lost meals, several days of the most memorable events of our lives and we landed on Ua Huka, in the islands of the Marquesas, French Polynesia. I think Dois is very handy.
