Bike ride to a treasure chest
Dick has nicknamed the other boatyard in Guaymas "Camp Dirt."
The treasure chest: a falling-apart trimaran that's being parted out. We came home empty-handed.
While Dick explored in the treasure chest, I watched 5 men work on a boat that had gone aground - oops! The truck is tethered to the boat and is backing up while the two guys are pulling on a line tied to the top of the mast. They're trying to "rock" the boat sideways hoping it will slide off a shelf into deeper water. There is also a dinghy (hard to see) on the port stern pushing for all its worth. The owner of the boat is ondeck scampering about. Dick and I didn't stay long enough to see if these three simultaneous techniques worked out.
