Moving a boat from east coast to west coast via Mexico?

Hello Sailnetters,

I was wondering if anybody has had any recent experiences with transporting a boat across Mexico?

We are considering moving our 30' sailboat from the US east coast to the west coast and it appears that transport prices from Texas to California are higher than we'd like them to be. Sailing via Panama is not an option due to time and crew constraints, unfortunately, so we were wondering if crossing via Mexico at the narrower point would be a better idea? This would still involve some sailing - meaning time - so we'll see if this route it's worth exploring. We'll have to find our balance in the "time is money" equation.

We did some searches on the net but could not find any good information yet (like recommended transport companies or previous experiences).

Thanks for any info.

Dana S.
