What the f*ck is that smell?

I woke up this morning to one of the most atrocious stenches I have ever smelled. I can't even describe it without being offensive, but it's a little like dead rat only way worse. So far I haven't been able to locate the source so I can remove it. I really can't believe a smell this bad could just appear so suddenly...

It doesn't seem to be coming from the typical spots. It's not the heads, the sinks, the drains, the bilge, the garbage, and even the holding tanks don't seem to be any worse than normal. I sniff one end of the boat and it smells like its coming from the other end, then vice versa. Sometimes it even smells like it's coming from outside.

Ugh. How am I supposed to bring ladies aboard when my boat smells like this?

Update: After a few days of trying to find the source the smell just disappeared by itself. Weird.

It's finally here! After about two months without sailing, my new sail has arrived! I'd show it to you, but in my excitment to get in installed I totally forgot to take any photos. Whatever. I'll take some as soon I go sailing. Probably today, but this weekend at the latest! Let's go!

Night of the Iguana

My poolside drinking buddy

I just got back from a sweet little vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to sail there and back so we had fly like normal people. We stayed at an all-inclusive resort that my buddy's time share covered.

The place was pretty awesome: Peacocks and iguanas roaming around the place, great restaurants, huge pools with a swim-up bar, and 24-hour unlimited room service. One interesting note: while iguanas usually only eat fruit, they will try to grab anything you leave by the side of the pool if you aren't paying attention. My buddies and I were quite content to float around in the pool, soaking in the sun while sipping on pina coladas and having tacos delivered whenever we pleased...

Everything was perfect. Except that for some reason we decided to bring chicks with us. Talk about a fucking nuisance. Actually, aside from the nagging, wanting to go shopping/clubbing, and inappropriate emotional outbursts they were fine. Next time, though, we'll make do with the girls that are already in Mexico.

I don't remember where this was, but I think it's funny that he's blowing on her nipples
