Cool change.

Don the fridge man helping solve the fridge problem.

After several weeks, actually more like 2-3 months, of frustrating times chasing down possible problems with our refrigeration system, it appears that we have it all put to bed.  Long story short is that there was an unknown blockage in the system, most likely in the capillary tube, that we blew out with about 300 psi of nitrogen then welded a filter/dehydrator in the loop to prevent future blockages and finally recharged the entire system.  That was about 4 days ago and since it has been running like a charm.  We are so glad to have that nagging problem behind us.

We are now anchored in Punta de Mita, a small surf town at the far northwest end of Banderas Bay.  We will hang out here for a couple days then head north toward Chacala and Matanchen Bay looking for more surf over the next week to ten days.  After that we come back down to the Puerto Vallarta area to pick up Marne's sister and niece.  Life is good.
