If you're looking to find a free place to live that's devoid of mosquitos and close to services, good luck and let us know what you find because that dream no longer exists.
THERE IS NO FREE ANCHORAGE INSIDE SAN DIEGO
BAY. the ONE that USED TO be free was closed. now you go to cop dock
, speak with the police and they will inspect your boat for seaworthiness and mebbe alow you 72 jours to anchor
, 72 hours is up at 0900 the third day. not 1300 when you got the permit
, but 0900.
if you speak of the surfline anchorage on pacific side of coronado penisnula, pays your money
and takes your chances, sucks to be there in a storm of any kind.... not to mention the thieves of sd bay have been relegated to this outside location. pretty nice??
only for meth heads and derelicts.
it isnt much for a temporary mooring
. san diego mooring
co is the source of aall moorings except fiddlers cove, in san diego bay.
yes san diego bay has em. sd bay is within the dengue location parameters found on cdc site
yes most every where with fresh water has em.
especially if said fresh water stands more than 3 days.
use skeeter netting liberally and occasional deet or autan or whatever you choose.
woods with citronella oil
, which is a mineral oil with citronella and does work. i added orange peel.
skeeter netting works. i even have porthole screens of the stuff.
remember that west coast
skeeters and jejenes, aka no see ums, love avons bs oily stuff that SOME folks find useful as skeeter repellant.
i found baby oil to work just as well.
