-There is a marina right there (with water and electricity)
so we could get Loomba-Loomba all ready to go while she was still in
-They don't use a travel-lift with slings that could scratch the hull,
instead they use a hydraulic trailer.
-It's a smaller dry storage yard than the other two yards in the area.
-For the last few days when the sails took over our berth we could
stay in the same condo we stayed in last fall and winter and this yard
is closer to the condo.
-We didn't want to have to deal with Domingo the painter and be
reminded of our very frustrating and stressful fall and winter in Guaymas.

We spent about four hours in the boat yard doing the last minute stuff and left San Carlos early the next morning, June 25th.
