I met Howard via VHF radio in my last anchorage on my way back to La Paz from my trip up north. He’s 72 and an amazing guy! Also a fellow Northwesterner from Seattle. We spent about 6 hrs working on his oil cooler for his diesel engine and discussing our philosophies on life which are so similar. I was really needing some companionship that day and Howard needed a little extra muscle so it worked out beautifully. Not to mention Howard bought me lunch at a place that was packed with locals. He and I were the only gringos in the place and the food was superb. Hopefully I’ll run into Howard again somewhere down the road. Check his blog out if you get a chance. He’s doing a wonderful job of capturing the history and sites of all the places he goes on his boat Ravens Dance.
