States rights, man! Keep big Govt. out of my stash, man!

The feds may try to bust you, man, but the sheriff is the only one who has jurisdiction here, man!


Unfortunately, that ship sailed.


You referrin' to the War of Northern Aggression?

Previously someone mentioned San Luis Obispo, but i believe they are landlocked. 


Quit being a tool.

Avila Beach is the beach for San Luis Obispo.

13 minutes away by car.

If only there was video of the anchor line chafing...

Oh what a fine art video that would make!


Use a camera on a timer to shoot one frame every hour starting from when the new line was first made fast to the eventual parting.

North to South?

You should pay for the privilege!


It can get cold and blustery with some big seas, especially near Point Sur and Point Conception.

What others have said about preparation is good advice. Make sure the fuel system is well serviced: fresh filters plus spares, for example. Sediment in the tank can get pretty well shaken up in the choppy seas.


You can plan on Monterey for a first stop after a 1-day shakedown. Then wait for a weather window and make a dash for Santa Barbara.


Moro Bay is sort of an iffy place for refuge. I mean, if you make through the entrance, you're pretty good, but the entrance can be breaking. Google 'Mojo Morro Bay'. Look closely; there's a 70-footer in there...


There are a few places to duck at anchor (San Simeon, San Luis Obispo, etc.) but you you need detail charts to make sure you don't become intimate with the thousands of low rocks along the coast. Best bet it to make a run for Santa Barbara or points south. You don't need to stop at Santa Barbara; it's just the first real refuge accessible in most conditions south of Monterey.


Once past Santa Barbara you can day-sail your way to Ensenada. The last USA stop, San Diego, puts you near good provisioning places and fun nightlife.

Application calls for a ton of data?


How else would they decide?
