Destination Mexico tells you everything you need to know about getting yourself and your boat ready for a cruise of weeks or months in Mexican waters. For the practical, you'll find advice on clothing and provisions, recreational and galley equipment, toiletries, and medical aids. The authors, themselves veterans of Mexican cruising, guide you through the intricacies of government paperwork, insurance, handling your business affairs while you are away, even crew selection and buddy boats. The second half of the book comprises an alphabetical listing of all the equipment you are likely to need on a Mexico-bound small yacht. 25 years of cruising experience have gone into comprehensive discussions of electrical, mechanical, and navigational gear. How do you select batteries, GPS navigators, dinghies, and other essentials? What cost and maintenance factors are involved? Destination Mexico provides all the answers to these and all the other questions you are likely to ask when preparing for the Mexican cruise of your dreams.
