Re: Cali Liveaboard Reality...

Any suggestions on where one might be able to stay on a boat in the south bay?
I may be working in Mountain View a few days a week.

even cedros island has anchorages ...
mexico is not a vast wasteland by any stretch of ones imagination.
even the desert areas have something for folks.
coastal tropical mexico is gorgeous and sports many anchorages that are easy and semi protected.
there are mayan ruins in mexico to visit once you arrive and plant boat for a day or two--many many interesting things to see and do in mexico, once one leaves the gringo infested areas close to border, inclusive of the golfo de california, aka sea of cortez. omg, and there is even technology!!!! mexico is not a backward nation, as is commonly thunk. omg!! heck they even have 4g interwebs service..occasionally
...rodlmao

san diego is large enough to support traffic and recreational use. funny thing about that--but one best sail using depth sounder--and it takes exactly 1 1/2 hours to get from chula vista marina, in south bay, to the entrance of sd bay--hardly a full days sailing. done that, many times.

Zeehag, have you run across some friends of mine in the sea of cortez? they been going there for maybe 20 years or so. they are sailing a Capo 30 called (latest caper) names are, Gary and Genie

Coyote Point Marina in San Mateo will be your best bet.

Re: Cali Liveaboard Reality...

If we want to work the West Coast into a long term cruising plan, and really don't like the sound of the run north up the coast, is the best plan then to head from Panama to say Hawaii and loop back to PNW and then down the coast?
