What's your definition of expensive and how far south do you intend to go?
Getting a 35 ft liveaboard slip in S. Calif. in a month on a budget may be harder than sailing to Portland (which I'm not recommending).
Slips may be available in Ventura and Channel Islands they have been expanding/remodeling. Deep in San Diego near Chula Vista may have some available at slightly lower pricing. Wilmington/ San Pedro used to have some reasonable marinas but I've heard they've been closing.
My 30 foot slip in a new marina in Alameda was $300/month, my 40 year old 30 ft slip in Dana Point is $503. Location costs.
Check the website for The Log newspaper, they'll have a link for their annual guide to slips and marinas, everyplace is listed there. Better start calling now to find a slip by October.
Otherwise, Ensenada maybe? I know commercial guys that take their boats to Mx for work in the off season, but those are big fishing boats.
Zeehag, Aren't you in ensenada?

Re: Coastal Sailor Wanted

Although you have a great boat a off shore boat it is not. What you are looking for is a offshore sailor not a coastal sailor. Big Difference. The time you have chosen is a bad time just ship it. A good off shore cap will cost about 250 to 400 a day plus expenses for travel and provisioning the boat. Would probably be about the same to ship and much safer.

Re: Coastal Sailor Wanted

At the risk of sounding like Sarah Palin you are sailing from LA. or L.A. ? Long Beach south to Mission Beach in S.D. ( not South Dakota!) is a good trip with a self serve yard. Also a little further brings you to Ensenada Mexico where Baja Navel does fantastic work ( based on my own experience), but this may not work for you as they allow you to do your own work only above the waterline.
Finding someone to make that run should be easy. I would even be up for that.

Re: Coastal Sailor Wanted

Capttb I'm so jealous $300 for a slip. I will say that in S.D. finding a slip is no problem anymore but expect about $600 or more. Salina in Mexico which is North of Ensenada is a Very nice Marina which is really desperate to get boats. Very good rates, my friend is paying around $300 for 40'. I think they have a yard too.

Re: Coastal Sailor Wanted

I did quite a bit of marina shopping while I was looking for my boat, starting last January. Without crosssing the border, the best bet for a SLIGHTLY less expensive slip is Wilmington. But if the boat needs work, and you're going to take her to Oregon eventually, forget the slip and find a yard that will let you keep her on the hard and work on her til you're ready to go. This should cost less than half as much as a slip.
