Hauling out in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico

You would think they would move the little boat
We have just been hauled out at Marina Guaymas, which isn't even a marina.  It is a dirt lot in an industrial area across the bay from the town of Guaymas.  The yard has a 50 ton Travelift and we weigh 17 tons but it is only 21 ft wide and we need 24 1/2 ft.  The deal is that there is a shrimp boat overhaul facility next door that has a 250 ton lift so they will haul us out and take us down the road to this yard.  All went well and Tortuguita is laid up for the summer.
