Re: Hauling and storage Southern Cal. -Mexico

Try talking to San Diego Boat Movers. As, in addition to moving boats, they keep a large yard about 10 miles or so inland. Where folks can both; work on, & store their boats longer term than in a yard, for less $.
Although I can't say for certain that with your beam, that they can move you, but it's worth a shot.


Also, query the various yards; Driscoll's, etc. in order to find out who can move a boat of that size & width. As if you find space at a light industrial park, it may even work out to be a better value.


I rebuilt several trimarans in San Diego that way, a couple of decades back, up maybe 15min. south of Oceanside. And the only pricey part was moving the boats, due to their beam, & the need for a semi-specialized Lo-boy tractor trailer.


Or... I could rent out your boat as an apartment or a few months... if given the marina's nod


Oh, & please fill us in on what you do find out; the good news & the bad.

Option B (possibly):
There may still be an outfit (or freelance, you assemble the deal yourself) in AZ/Mexico. Who'll truck a boat one way in between the two places, & or both.
With the Sea of Cortez being relatively close to AZ, IIRC.
Plus, they'd likely have Far cheaper storage options on either end, than Pacific'ish real estate in SoCal.

Option C (the "Sideways" one):
If your boat's foam/glass, it could be "disassembled", if it'll be "drydocked" long term. Meaning surgically seperating it into different pieces.
Thus making it Much easier both to transport & to store. Then, when you're ready to go sailing again. Pull out the Naval Architect's (NA) notes, & spec's, & glue her back together. Literally.

As many modern, custom, & semi-custom, multihull designs are designed this way from page 1. When they're still an idea. Albeit, this IS a Very design specific method. Since cutting structural connectives in some boat is just Not an option. Particularly if they're non Foam/Glass boats.

You might give Gabriel Laros a shout at Marina Seca Guaymas.

marinasecaguaymas@yahoo.com

I've not hauled there but he said he could haul our boat with 25' beam. Unfortunately Marina Seca San Carlos no longer has that capability. La Cruz may be another option.
