Haul out in San Diego

Gudday! Can anyone recommend a place where I can haul out my boat in or relatively close to San Diego? Need to haul her our and do some work on the bottom and rudder.

Re: Haul out in San Diego

The last time I checked, none of the yards in San Diego will let you do your own work. Fifteen years ago when I needed to haul out I went to South Bay in Chula Vista because they were the only one's who would let you do your own work. That is no longer the case. I'm not sure where the closest yard is that will let you do your own work but I have used Ventura Boat Yard and was very happy with their service. They were very accommodating and I wouldn't hesitate to haul there again in the future.

Re: Haul out in San Diego

profmariner--if you have more bux than dog, those are great yards.
if you are normal, there is usually a summer deal in the south bay..i only paid 1800 dollars for a 35 ft ericson haul, paint with barrier coat as well as paint, and ALL underwater thru hulls replaced. was named south bay boatyard at the time.
i believe now that the mission bay driscolls is the best deal.

Re: Haul out in San Diego

What about Baja Naval? I know that in the "old days" you would save a ton of cash by getting work done down there, but I looked at their fee schedule a couple months ago and after all the government paperwork and other fees it didn't look so cheap any more. Will definitely look into Driscoll's in Mission Bay though...

Re: Haul out in San Diego

There is a small yard next to Bandidos in the Ensenada Harbor north of Baja Naval that you used to be able to pull cheaply and do your own work. Remember to lock up your tools at night, however. Capt Phil

Baja naval is still a good deal. Friend was hauled out there for about a month. Did most of his own work, but did hire some help. Yard labor rates about 1/3 of san diego. Best to bring materials down with you however.

Re: Haul out in San Diego

baja naval is very very expensive and will not allow anyone to do own work. the old days are way gone. this yard is run by usa corporation and is in competition with shelter island boatyard and driscolls, shelter island. they get their parts from san diego marine exchange.
after mission bay, if you want to save money with haulout you go to san carlos/guaymas. otherwise you pay a very lot of money.
san blas is a lesser priced yard, san blas islands, mexico, south of mazatlan. one is able to do own work here.
the shrimper yards in mazatlan ar decently priced and do excellent work.

btw--this is CURRENT info.
capt phil--that yard, as well as bandidos, is GONE. does no longer exist. bandidos was lost to taxes this past autumn, and removed from sight by government.

Baja Naval does let one do your own work, if you agree before hand. I think they do not want people standing beneath boats, but... work inside, or agreeing on what has to be done is fine. I found their prices to be MORE THEN FAIR, and their work ethic was NOT to rip you for as much as they can, rather to do the best job possible. There have been many situations, where they solved my (or others) problem in a way that was not as beneficial financially for themselves, yet was excellent for me (or others).

I have said many times that Baja Naval does not do just good work. Their work is EXCELLENT. They have many repeat customers, and are very professional. I do not know where you get your info from Zee, but....

I also know that Baja Naval can work with you and your TIP (temporary import permit) to allow you to import parts duty and customs free. Again, I can not say enough positive about them.

Disclosure: I am a repeat satisfied customer. That is the only relationship I have with them. I am probably so vocal, as I have heard these misconceptions spread about quite often, and it is sad how it can hurt a GREAT group of people, and hence I wish to help correct the misinformation.

Re: Haul out in San Diego

I had to write and second H20Man's endorsement for Baja Naval. We've had our boat there for several months, in a slip, as we outfit her for cruising. They are incredibly professional, friendly, no language barrier, and a much better deal than yards in San Diego. (and they give insider recommendations on where to find the best tacos in town!) I was nervous about having work done in Mexico, after a questionable incident in La Paz, but I couldn't be happier with BN. Highly recommended.

Re: Haul out in San Diego

i didnt say they don't do good work--i said they charge just as much as overpriced san diego. i witnessed some shady operations being done there. each to his own favorite yard.
have fun and happy haulout.
