Sea of Cortez Advice

I have always wanted to explore the Sea of Cortez. My plan would be to try to find an inexpensive, cruising boat ($10,000 / 30-35”) that I could use in those relatively, sheltered waters. Now to the meat of my post! I would appreciate input and advice on inexpensive boatyards / marinas, that I could use to base / store the boat between cruising episodes. I am not a “gold faucets” type of guy, obviously, but would like at least minimal amenities combined with safety and security. I should mention that the “Admiral” is Puerto Rican, speaks fluent Spanish and is Latin “street-smart”. Any input, based on experience or solid word of mouth would be most appreciated.

Re: Sea of Cortez Advice

I expect there will be a lot of boats such as you'd like to find already at San Carlos, on the Mainland side about half way up the Sea of Cortez. That seems the preferred haulout/dry storage spot in the region. Not sure of the costs, but far less than what you'd expect on our side of the Mexican border.

Some of these boats at that price point may be quite derelict or neglected, so proceed with eyes wide open.
