    This Epirb came with the purchase of my boat. The battery is long past expired and needs replacing before use. I'm offering it to someone who needs one on a budget.

    Epirb battery replacement time

    Anyone know of a rea$onable place/person to swap out the battery on my ACR global fix? The few on-line places I see are around $270. At that cost it's pretty much time to just trash can it since a 10 year vs 5 Epirb can be had for just a couple hundred more. Thanks

    La Salina update

    A new sailboat pulled into cruiseport marina yesterday. We chatted and he said he and his buddy had just gotten out of La Salina. Apparently they personally funded the dredging of the channel in order to get out, wasn't cheap. It will be interesting to see how long it remains passable.

    great eats in or around cabo

    In San Jose I like the Retro Bar in the central district. Happy hour; liters of Modello spec or negro are 35 pesos. I take fresh fish in and they cook it 3-5 different styles. Always great and very good service. They also have the UFC fights and never a cover charge.

    Puerto Los Cabos Live bait

    Grab your own calamari fillets at Walmart, 20 kilo box was $50 or so. Cut into 2x2 chunks and throw 4-5 over along with a baited one on the gordo inner/outer bank. If there are tuna around you will get bite!

    San Jose Del Cabo hotel - fisherman welcome

    Great place, almost always stop for chips and beer after a day of fishing.

If you stay there you are only 75 yards from the...

    Cabo on The Rebound

    No its pretty clear , you are way to picky. Walking down one flight of stairs is a real ball buster. AC working yesterday. My kid flew in and it took 20 whole minutes to de-plane, walk down a flight of stairs, clear immigration, clear customs and walk out to the bar. Cost me 20 pesos to park.
