As we prepare Rutea for her next cruise, her appearances are changing ever so slightly. Soon she'll be sporting a new hard dodger and she'll also have an enclosure of isenglass AND a screen enclosure. Her new portlights are on order and should be in sometime later in the summer. We're hoping to have her cockpit painted as well. Down below, she'll look much the same except we're hoping to get busy with the varnish that been so badly neglected.
Our tentative itinerary has us leaving San Diego in early December and lazily making our way to mainland Mexico. We hope to depart Puerto Vallarta sometime in March or April for the South Pacific.
