Beginning of June 2015
We are currently house sitting in Bucaries for Tony and Ronnie. We purchased our Ocean Kayak " Malibu Two"model from the Bucerias email group after Debbie placed an add for one. We were in Barra de Navidad at the time. Tony and Ronnie took delivery of this used kayak for us after we paid for it with PayPal. Now we are getting the "extras". We have purchased two new seats and a dry hatch which Mike and Michelle are bring back from the US for us.
Our Ocean Kayak " Malibu Two" sitting at Tony and Ronnie's house in Bucerias Mexico by Puerto Vallarta.
We just came back from Home Depot in Puerto Vallarta with a new combination cable lock and a 15 ft cable. Theses you can see being tested in the picture for ease of use.This will enable us to lock up the kayak when going to shore using it instead of the dinghy.
A tip we got was to get a gardening knee pad from Home Depot and cut it to fit for a seat or for use under a seat for added padding.
For instance in Acapulco we can use the kayak and then lock it while we take a bus off to the movies. We have nice paddles already and life vests. The paddles and little seats that came with the used kayak we can use for a trip off to the movies as they are kind of expendable. This is not say they would disappear. We have in all our travels in our three plus years here in Mexico not once have ever ever had a problem with theft.Of course we do the prudent things like locking things up. The old paddles do not come apart so we will drill a hole on each one so we can run a small cable through them and leave them with the kayak on the beach.
