Yacht transport business 2 C. Smith Thanks Glenora!  We are very much looking forward to getting home.Yacht transport seems to be an intricate business and perhaps with more boats choosing this option, the business will get loaded up with less stable providers.  Right now, the company we are using is the only major provider on this route, stopping in at  La Paz and Ensenada between Golfito, Costa Rica and Victoria.  They are expensive but are customer oriented with a legitimate office in Florida and dedicated staff.  Our experience with Company A was quite different.

Baja Haha Or Not? 1 A. Naismith We've done Mexico twice - meet Richard of Latitude 38  and the haha organizer in '82 - he's a nice guy with lot of experience and stories but we didn't haha in '94 for at least 2 of the reasons you highlight.With so many boats out there at once things can get very hectic in reduced visibility which we have had on the west coast of the Baja - thunder storms with 100 ft visibility in torrential rain and 40 knots of wind -only last a few hours but scary when  you are around 15 boats you have been conversing with for a few days and have a fair idea where every one is as the storm hits - absolutely terrifying with 180 boats in the fleet!! Then when you hit Turtle Bay or Santa Maria all the best anchorage spots will be taken and you are out in the rolly, deep areas a long way from shore. Forget getting anything in Turtle Bay as supplies won't supply the fleet.The West Coast is an interesting cruising ground - we spent about 3 weeks going down both times and a couple of weeks heading North after our circumnavigation. If you meet a couple of compatible boats on your way down the California coast you can have a very full social life as you gunk hole south.
