San Diego, CA - Marina Suggestions

I'm planning on shipping (via truck) my Freedom 40/40 from Milwaukee to San Diego late in the fall. Then in March I plan to sail from San Diego to the Sea of Cortez.

I'm looking for suggestions for a marina where I can leave BlueJacket on the hard from fall to March and then re-launch and head on out. I'm looking for a marina that has a good yard in case in run into any issues. Of course they need a crane to step the mast and a 20+ ton travel lift. I'll probably need 1-2 weeks at dock once I launch.

Thanks, Geoff

Boatyard? We don't need no stinking, Boatyard!

Dear Geoff,

There are plenty ( OK, more than five) yards in San Diego Area, but not much dry storage attached at a reasonable price. You would be better off trucking it straight to Baja Naval in Ensenada where they have a good yard and lower prices. Obviously you would have to "import" the yacht to Mexico, but since that's where your going you could kill two birds and save some money.

Further, unless it has to do with your available time off, heading south in the spring is a little bass ackward, since the weather in Baja Sur can be hot as hell with a chance of hurricanes in the summer. Hence the fall migration south and bash north before May.

Great cruising grounds and La Paz is an entirely different ( more family, less party) venue than Cabo.

Do some research about the weather before you go.

Dry storage San Diego

Dry storage is virtually impossible. Getting a slip, however, or a mooring is quite easy. Getting the boat off the trailer, mast stepped, in the water, and in a slip is easy. I'd ship to Driscoll's Mission Bay (google it) and either get a slip there, at Marina Village in Mission Bay, or at harbor Island West in San Diego Bay.

Any recommendations for marinas on Shelter Island?

We've signed up for the Baja HaHa and will be sailing south in Sept from Seattle. We hope to get a slip (37-40 feet) in San Diego (Shelter Island) from Oct 17 to 24, so we can be near to all the Baja HaHa events.

Can anyone recommend a good marina on Shelter Island?

We just need the basics: water, electric, showers, laundary, near to stores and resteraunts.

Craig I think all the marinas on Shelter Island have the basics, you really only need to decide if you want one with a pool and room service.
I've posted a link to "The Log" page which lists the marinas in SD including those on Shelter Island, most have links to the marina website.

The log is a great guide to marinas.
If you are going to be in San Diego by chance on the 3rd of October, Ullman Sails on Shelter Island is having an offshore sailing seminar and BBQ on Monday October 3rd free to all Baja Ha Ha Sailors.
Shelter Island definitely has lots of access to food and supplies.

Edit: Nevermind, it looks like the two Mission Bay suggestions are outside of the bridge.

FYI- In California, yards and marinas must be (by law) seperate entities and therefore most marinas do not have yards attached.

ther eis only one marina and yard together-- but the marina is usually filled and has waitin g;list--is cf kohlers yard and marina.
all the yards in sd are pricey. good luck. is a most overpriced area.
