"something like that ice road truckers show. "
SHHHH! I just got off the phone with the folks at the History Channel, we're going to do it as a race with four drivers heading off on different routes, scored for speed, fuel consumption, and delivery condition. As executive producer, I'll be paid enough to finally get the cruising kitty in order. Airdate should be this summer. Thanks!

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

Just ran across info on trucking across Guatemala. It seems that this is done fairly often and there's quite a yachtie crowd in Rio Dulce who have a good handle on things. I'm dealing with some of them getting a boat ready for me to deliver.

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

I like the buying a new boat option. I sold my west coast boat, and bought an east coast boat when I got here, easy peasy- but I sail older 26-29 footers that practically grow on trees. The only reason for me to keep one in that situation would be so I could do the horn or the canal... which I will when time allows. Or if you're totally in love with the current sled... Whatever you do- DO NOT let common sense prevail- as this is sailing, there is always a way that costs more and makes less sense to the outside world, and will result in a similar outcome... That is probably the true way to go hahaha, good luck!!

Beam is 11', Captainmeme. And thanks for the welcome.

ChucklesR has a good point, in this market for the price of the transport you can buy another boat that size. Interesting times we live in.

We still did not look in detail at the feasibility of trailering the boat ourselves from Texas to CA, although a professional company seems preferable.
We'll see.

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

Thanks for the welcome and quick replies everybody!
I thought the Mexico option would be a long stretch, but ... not thaaat dangerous. I really did not know what is it like in Mexico and probably was just wishful thinking.

Anyway, thanks again, your input is valuable. Back to home routes we are.

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

Having driven across Mexico, I can imagine transporting a 30' sailboat would be something like that ice road truckers show. The roads suck, the authorities suck, and the mountains are big near the west coast.

Sell the boat, drive to California and buy a boat.
