its i guess about January 1985 wen we took Zubenubi over to one of the las Playitas shipyards and overhauld her pretty good.
John is all the way on the left, Debora only on a side view and Steve all the way on the right. And between all the hard working employees from the shipyard.
Wondering if John is still around somewhere?

Yes, he is sailing the med. I love the picture. I have some really good ones, when we were bringing her over from the Baja. Do you have any others?

The memories! We took her to so many little ports on the Baja, before heading over to the mainland. Those were the days.....fresh fish daily, lots of sea life swimming around the anchorages, and always the quest for ice.

I shared anchorages with Zubenubi for a few years.  Zubenubi was wrecked in the San Blas islands in the spring of either 1985 or 1986, I don't now recall the exact year.  I happened to meet John in Colon shortly after the wreck and he told me the story.  Apparently as they approached the islands, he went for a nap and told the guy on watch to wake him after a certain period of time because he needed to make a course change to avoid the reefs.  For whatever reason, the guy didn't wake him and they hit the reef.  The boat was stripped by the locals so nothing was salvaged.  It was too bad but John was somewhat relieved because he was beginning to feel that the boat owned him rather than the other way around.  At the time he said was going to one of the Carolinas but I don't now remember which one.  I haven't heard from him since.

Years later a friend of mine ran into him in the med. He was the captain for a charter they were on. In the mean time he had gone to the Carolinas and built some homes, to make some money. Last I heard he was still sailing.

Thanks for your updates LTR.

I met Barb with John at her little cabin on a little lake in Tucson and when she came down to San Carlos. She was working to get her massage license so she brought her bench and I was one of her lucky victims. ☺ If you're still in contact with her tell her I said, "Hi" and that I'm glad for her and her family.

As for John (Jon?) it's good he's still in/on the water(s). It seemed he was in his element when there was no land in sight.

All the best,
Steve
