The boat is a 1977 Islander 28'. It is located at a marina in Newport beach, ca. I need to get it to SF bay.

Check the craigslist "Marine Services" section. Plenty of deliver skippers advertising there. Whether or not you can find one willing to take a 36-year-old O'Day 28 up the coast at this time of year is a different story.

Whatever. It's a slow boat on a lee shore at the wrong time of year. Good luck.

Re: Newport Beach to SF $$$ How?

For sailing, depends on the time you can allow. Your greatest chance for southerly winds or other than the prevailing NW winds is January through March. Unfortunately, it's also the the greatest chance of getting really crappy weather. You may get lucky and see sustained southerlies, had that happen when I took my boat from Santa Cruz to Alameda, southerly winds for 2 weeks straight in March. Also sailed the other way in January and had NWesterlies blowing force 5 the whole way to Point Conception. Definitely wouldn't have wanted to be going the other direction with those winds. If you can hole up at Santa Barbara or even the lee of Point Conception and wait for favorable winds, you can have a pretty uneventful trip. But you'll have to be prepared to hide in Morrow Bay, Monterey, Santa Cruz etc. should the weather change. In other words, it's doable but not on a tight schedule

Re: Newport Beach to SF $$$ How?

Peter O, Thanks for the reply. Time is on my side. Your input is greatly appreciated.

HappyMdRSailor. have a good quote from uShip and will probably use them, but I do want to try the sail. Probably prudent to try it a different season since this would be only my second off shore jaunt. Thanks... Ron

Re: Newport Beach to SF $$$ How?

Ravin...

There's another current good post here on SD to SF:

Sailing Los Angeles to San Francisco in November

One thought... You're in Newport... Sail to the island, then MdR, then Ventura maybe... Have a blast for 1/2 a week, and get a uShip quote from Ventura to SF?

That way you can have some fun, and avoid the tough stuff North... And probably save some $$$ too!

Easy sail what I described... Day hops... YOU CAN DO IT RON!

Re: Newport Beach to SF $$$ How?

If it has a diesel engine, I'd say yes. gas, maybe not.

If the boat is in great shape, ready to beat upwind into 25 knots for days, and the engine is in good shape, then try it. If it's neglected, ship it.

Re: Newport Beach to SF $$$ How?

I have made that trip years ago on a Yankee 28, which is similar to the Islander. Don't try it with an Atomic 4 gas. The worst part of the trip is after Santa Barbra around Point Conception - watch your weather closely and plan a window there to wait. If you can leave it in Newport Beach or move it to a marina up the coast, to wait out the season, you will increase your chances of a better trip. Engine is key going up the coast and there will be times you could be making 2 knots forward progress, so keep you fuel calculations up to date and don't be afraid to turn tail back to Santa Barbra and watch entering from the North.

Shippers. Try U-Ship for a good idea what to expect. Many of the quotes you receive on there are from Brokers who once they find an actual shipper, the price will change based upon things not discussed. Take the quotes from the actual shippers as a better indication. A fly by night shipper may try and get away with a no permit ship, but keep in mind that your rear side is on the line. Also, make sure they have good insurance, including cargo.

As I recall, the mast on that boat is keel stepped. You will have to have the boat decommissioned and commissioned on the other end. You will have haul and load, and decommission costs including a minimum for crane time. Figure $500 - $1000 each side, just to get it on the truck if you are paying someone to do it. If you can find a smaller yard or club with a mast crane, that will save you a couple hundred. It has been years since I have been in that area, but there was a small boat yard on the corner of Lafayette and 29th Street that had an old crane to haul and was very reasonable in comparison to the other yards for small boats like that.

Unless you really like that boat, or cruising it outside of the bay is your goal, I would probably reconsider and find one up there as there are plenty of good deals to be found if you are patient and not in a hurry. Craig's List, Lat 38, Ebay, and even walking the marina's for For Sale signs.

I remember seeing an Islander 28 on a trailer close to SD asking 7K that was on the market for a long time. The trailer was worth $4-6K alone. That would be worth it, but you would still have to permit the load and find someone to pull it up.

Re: Newport Beach to SF $$$ How?

There are just as many boats in the SF Bay as there are in So Cal. Buy something closer. I pretty much stole my boat in Alameda and my friend scored a 60' aluminum cutter in the estuary for next to nothing and he's cruising Mexico now. Start beating up your shoes on the docks and in the boatyards. Catalina 27's were going for 3K at Nelson's before they were closed. They cut up several of them for the lead on the keels.
