I live aboard my boat "Manta" a 46 foot Trimaran in Puerto Escondido, Baja Mexico and I am an Independant Dive Guide / Consultant for the Sea of Cortez, and the Revillagigedo Islands, San Benedicto, Socorro, and Clarion Islands.

I hope you still check in on this site for messages! Please send back a comment, I have been wondering what you're doing nowadays and where you're doing it at!! This is Duane (DJ) Chaney. I would love to hear from you. You can also email me at: DJCElectric@gmail.com or my wife's email: email@example.com (she checks her emails more often than I do). Awesome boat! Looking forward to hearing from you and catching up on old times!!
Hello Terry, Its been about 25 years since we last saw eachother. Glad to see that you are still doing what you love. Your new boat looks great. What ever happened to the Erotica? I am still in the bay area running the family business. Terry is doing fine as are all my sisters. I still scuba dive every chance I get. Mostly in Hawaii with my daughter who is a scuba nut. I hope this note finds you well and keep in touch. Take care, Georgia Baxter-Krause
Haven't heard from you for awhile. Hope all is going well and life is treating you good. I hear you are doing wonders with the Mantas. Guess, you are still doing what you love. Don't imagine there are very many "Sailors from the Old days" around Baja.
Drop me a line sometime. Would be great to hear from you.
Its been well over 20 years since I last spoke to you. Hope you're doing well. This is Leslie from Journey - remember me????. I am currently living in MD but moving to ID and we also have a house in San Felipe, Mexico. I haven't talked to Dave in many, many years - I've been married to Ed for 12 years (a non-sailor but you'd like him) I am going on a one week sailing charter in the British Virgin Islands for diving and fun which is what made me think of you. (thanks for teaching me to dive!) I'd love to get together when we are in Mexico in March if you're up for it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please respond to the email as I won't check this account. I just set up this account to say hi to you! You can also go to my Facebook page to see current pictures.
PS: I can't believe you're in a tri - I remember the old Erotica with fond memories! We had some good times on her. Take care, Leslie
Next time I get down that way, let's get together, have a drink or two and talk about the old sailing times times. Sure glad I found you. You probably know I married Sam and he passed a long time ago. We all sure had GREAT times together. I sure miss them. After he passed I moved to Reno, NV and came down to Loreto several times, but only found a few sailing buddies around. Love your TRI. Sounds like you are still doing alot of diving and teach it now. I heard about the Ensanada problem. Hope all has worked out. Stay in touch. Catch ya later
Terry, The photo of the diver and the manta is amazing! I see that your boat is also Manta. It all makes sense.....especially the fact you are in the Sea of Cortez....big manta country. I havent been diving in awhile and its been awhile since I have been to the Sea. Do you have a website?
New to the group, going through the posts, I have come upon this thread. I was considering tinting my windows of my Beneteau 43 with a darker tint, but I really like your idea. So I will copy with…"

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"
Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year. The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
