Marina in SoCal / Northern Mexico

Hello everybody,

I am looking for some suggestions of safe (and possibly cheap) places where I might leave my boat from March 2010 to October 2010. The area should be either in south California or north Mexico (Pacific coast, of course).

Thanks you all,
Nop

Thank you for your fast reply. It is the same cost I have been paying here in Japan. I will check your suggestions very carefully.

Cheers,
Nop

Where in Japan are you? My wife is from Kagoshima on Kyushu. Good sailing I hear in and around the Islands.

Yeah, Wilmington from what I hear. San Diego can easily be double. It's outrageous

And hey Remo. If you end up in Wilmington and need a boat keeper, we can help out in that regard. Will you be traveling, living aboard? You should plan to sail to Catalina Island while here. Very good place to visit.

There really isn't an anchorage anymore. There is one spot near the Coast Guard station for temps. The Port has set up a mooring system which is reasonable I guess at $100/mo, when I used it it was $30 - I'm so cheap!

In the last years I have been living in Osaka which, even though is on the sea, cannot be defined a nice place where to sail (actually it is pretty ugly, with factories anywhere along the coast). Kyushu, on the other hand, is much nicer but the imprinting of "man constructions" is still extremely strong. Japan, unluckily, as no respect at all for Nature (just an example: here is common practice for fishermen to remove the anti-fouling of their boats by using the acid of old batteries. Then, of course, both the anti-fouling and the acid end up in the sea...)

About my coming to the western coast of north America, my plan is to cross the Pacific straight to California the next Spring. I should land roughly at the beginning of May then I will need a safe and cheap place where to leave my boat for some months (while I will move to my home country for job duties). Because the boat will not be used for about 6/8 months, also a shipyard would be fine (here in Japan to have the boat in the water is much cheaper than to have it on the ground: what about California?). Of course also a boat keeper would be a great help: I had to leave unattended my boat for 4 months here in Japan and the amount of "salad" grown on the hull was enough to feed a middle town! To have somebody moving it from time to time would be really great (unless, of course, I will find a cheap shipyard...).

Cheers,
Remo

P.S. I am also looking for somebody who might be interested in crossing the Pacific from Japan to California with me. If you are interested let me know, ok? (estimated time: 2 months; leaving: 1st March 2010)
