"MexWX: Mexico Weather for Boaters" is an important text for any boater visiting Mexico's Pacific waters. Concisely written and well illustrated, it answers: HOW to use your boat's own SSB, VHF, WXfax and Ham radios to gather vital weather forecasts for your location in Mexican waters;
WHEN does Hurricane Season start and end; WHERE is it safe to "summer over;" WHAT creates a "weather window" and HOW to tell if it's about to slam shut; WHO broadcasts weather for Mexico; HOW to navigate the infamous Gulfs of Tehuantepec and Papagallo, and more. Sprinkled with a few choice sea stories and vivid ancedotes, Rains wrote this book for fellow adventurers. ("WX" is radio jargon for "weather" - pronounced "wex") Hence, MexWX.
