Trucking boat across Tehuantepec

I wonder if anyone knows of a company that will cart a boat across the Tehuantepec isthmus to the Pacific in Mexico. I think this may be cheaper and faster then the canal. (It's only 180 miles.)
Anyone?

Call one of the marinas in PV, Mazatlan or even San Carlos. These companies seem to come and go, so current info is sometimes off and/or useless. I'd try to find Dick Markie if I were you--great guy and knows everone

BTW, where are your planned upload/offload places? And how big is the boat?......

In planning stage

I don't really know yet. I think I'll cruise the Gulf shore lookin' for repair work on the busted up boats while the plan solidifies. This way, when the perfect scenario appears, I just go right there. The Pacific is home, and all I want is to get back there.
She's pretty big... 53 overall, 13 beam, and 34,600 pounds empty, so it will take some doing. I really don't know yet how I am going to get there... I want to sail all the way around, but look at all the expense in stores alone.
The canal looks to be around $5,000.00 that I don't have, so the thought is, find a Mexican trucking company with a low boy, and have her trucked only a couple hundred miles, and that would have to be cheaper. I left my wife back in Alaska 16 months ago, so I am itching to get home.
I don't know the guy you mentioned, could you get me anything more on him?
