Found this article from my hometown.

Technology makes leaps and bounds.


Moving a boat by barge or ship on the west coast

23 December 2016 - 02:02 PM

Anyone ever done this?


I have called several places and there doesnt really seem to be any regular routes from PNW to California, would prefer to get to SoCal but SF could work too.


Chartering a load would be ridiculous for this boat. But tagging it onto a load that is already going should work.


Fire away

Need a marina in SoCal

15 December 2016 - 12:51 PM

Some friends where planning on moving their wooden power boat from bellingham to SoCal. They are snowbirds so spend the summer in WA and the winter in PHX. They were all set up to ship the boat to chula vista when they got this letter,


Hello Judy,
Listen I have some bad news. As of about two weeks ago Chula Vista Marina is no longer taking wood boats.
Sorry about that, I had to tell the other fellow that was bringing his boat down from Washington the same thing.
New development, nothing we can do.
Nice to have met you last week.

Chula Vista Marina


The vessel is a 36ft Grenfells


Marina no more than 6 hrs from PHX, so that is pretty much LA to SD


Prefer to be near Encinitas #1 Woodland Hills #2


Need to be able to spend 3days a week 2-3x month aboard while they visit family.


Fire away!
