Thankyou for your kind offer of assistance.  I did go to the web page and was excited to see other Mariners for the first time.  Our boat "California Dreamer II" was owned by an older couple who sailed it to Loreto Baja Mexico.  Then they moved ashore and left the boat sit.  About 8 years ago I bought it.  I had the deck redone, new heavier stainless rigging and chainplates.  Last month I sailed it to La Paz and hauled out.  The bottom recieved four coats of Hemple paint, and a new depth transducer, a new cutlass bearing and stainless stell prop shaft.  CD II lives in Puerto Escondido, near Loreto.  It is a wonderful place for a boat.  A small store is at the end of a five min. dingy ride.  13 miles by taxi is the town of Loreto which is large enough to have most supplies but small enough to be non-touristy.  Loreto is a two hour plane ride south of Los Angeles on Aero California.
Attached is a double picture of her.  There have been no fees for mooring or anything in the last 4 years.  I would be glad to talk to anyone that wants to have a nice boat / vacation home in Mexico.
