I read a little news blip about a tall ship visiting San Pedro for a few days. I have become a bit of a boat stalker since getting Kenutu, so I had to get on board and do some snooping on the Cuauhtémoc, a Mexican Navy training vessel. The almost-25-year-old windjammer has sailed to ports all over the world, covering more than 700,000 nautical miles. She's been rode and rode hard.
After walking her decks and inspecting her brightwork and sail packing, let's just say that Mexican Navy is a force to be reckoned with. Every surface of the boat was spit shined, every line beautifully coiled... they put the phrase "tidy deck" to shame.
Someone way more talented than me was able to capture just how fastidious the crew of Cuauhtémoc is here. Totally worth a look if you feel up to knowing you're inferior.
