We got a VHF call in the middle of the night from our cruising mates Saben to say they had picked something up on their hull and it was clanging loudly (one of the downsides to having a steel hull I guess). We decided to head for the anchorage near Abreojos and dive on the boat to check it out. Jeorgia valiantly volunteered to escort them in. About 7 hours latter we were anchored in the bay past Abreojos. Steve dove the boat and found a loose zinc on the prop. No big deal. Up anchor and off to Bahia Santa Maria. Sailed all day and night till about 7:20am, then the wind died, the sails slapping was too much and the iron genny (engine) went on. Just made coffee and decided to write this. We are about 20 miles from Bahia Santa Marie. We'll stay there a night and then hop around the corner to Mag Bay.
