The poster said he had a motor yacht not a sailboat. The California current running from North to South along the Pacific side of Baja makes the journey a tough slog. Everyone I have talked to hates that voyage. But yeah, I get it that boats that move are more fun. Would like to hear from Axe what he decides to do.

Having lived on a boat in San Carlos, I think you will be very happy. You normally will have a breeze, and the boat I was on, didn't have all the amenities that you have. Great experience. Lots to do on the water in the summer. Stay cool by a quick dip in the water. A lot of people do not understand living on a boat. It is very different, but much nicer then one would expect in San Carlos. Give it a try and see if you like it! I did!

from mid July to mid September the word I use to describe it is oppressive. I have been here 7 straight summers. You acclimate a little but it really doesn't get better. You just learn to deal with it or head north. :cool:

Don't listen to Jimmy whatever you do.

Summer is the best time to be in SC. Get out on the water.

Jimmy's day has passed him by.

Boy, lot's of thoughts and opinions on this one.

There are several issues with leaving for 4 months or so, not the least of which is budget. Going on short trips with the boat is not a problem, but storing it and moving away would be an issue.

That’s precisely why you need to be here during the summer months and decide for yourself what works for you.  Asking a group of people will give you as many different opinions as there are people in the group.  Then the opinions and advice become useless and you are back to where you were before you asked.  
Especially the opinions of people who aren’t here during the summer because they have no first hand knowledge.


IMO the temperature info one gets online is very misleading.  Looking at Guaymas temp on the weather station at the airport is not a good indicator of temperatures in San Carlos.  the weather station and thermometers at my house consistently give very different readings than Guaymas or other online weather stations in San Carlos.


There have been times that I checked the car thermometer reading in Guaymas, and watch the temp drop as I drive back to San Carlos.  Sometimes the temperature difference is as much as 10 degrees by the time I get home.  Soon after exiting Hwy 15, and you are driving alongside San Francisco Bay, there is a noticeable temp drop.  I attribute that to the cooling effect of the sea breezes.


Hermosillo has incredibly hot summer weather and is not an indicator of San Carlos weather or temperatures

It has been so so warm the last couple of days. Temps around 100 on Beltrones but with relatively low humidity. I am working in a shop building a boat and its doable under the shade.

Soon the temps will drop around 10 degrees, but the humidity will also go up, making me sweat a lot more.

Are you here now, if so, how is it on your boat. I am accross the street from the beach, and the breezes have been strong, but as the ocean is still warming up, this isn't bad.

I have been coming here for over 40 years.

Down from a landlocked, mountainous, icy, windswept, snowbound and drifted in Wyoming. Minus 40s and wind chills of below minus 80. Near 50 years of working outdoors in oilfield. We just have lived here full time 12 to 14 years now. Yes Tucson is hot and Phoenix hotter, Hermosillo right there as well. Sun here is intense, seen it hit 100 degrees a time or three, mostly hotter days remain near mid 90s. Winters can be cool and a little breezy on the water. If heat is the big concern, use your God given smarts and play in the shade, in the cool water, nap under the AC. Come spend a few months before you make your life changes, see if it fits. And yes we're on the edge of the great Sonora Desert where folks are expanding in seemingly jillions of small casitas which require water. Maybe more times than not we are without water coming from the street. We were only without water in the house once and that was post hurricane Jimena some years back. Again, prepare and deal with it responsibly, it is not worth the whine time. Acclimate and enjoy, just don't bring the hoards with you, LOL. Ron

y not. I was a mud logger a long time ago. 60 below and dark 24 hours a day, Northwest Territories. As long as I have A/C I wouldn't trade the heat for the cold.

Never was a mudlogger, but loved the Geike-Wheeler River area up North of Wollaston Lake in far Northern Saskatchewan on the edge of NW Territories. Great huge Northerns, black bears everywhere and anywhere all the time. Mosquitos fight over eating you on spot or carrying you home for dinner? Some the size of a fair Mexican Vulture here I think, LOL.

Almost nearly true Frank, LOL. But love the summers here. No better hunting  than Wyoming, I do miss that. But I feel the same as Will Rogers, don't think I would last even one winter.

We finally had to give up San Carlos after 26 years of wintering there - the adjustment to Wyoming winters again has been difficult, but after six years, we're finally getting there (thank God for a good furnace!!).

Just hope you don't need to survive around Gillette or Riverton?? Wishing you the best, I love Wyoming but can't breath there any longer? Ron

We're still in Riverton, Wy Ynot - I've really noticed the difference in humidity and altitude, but then we were never full-time in San Carlos, unfortunately.  Didn't get entirely re-acclimated.

Of course Frankie, June is livable in SC. 40% humidity this morning.
I will be waiting for you to make a similar post the middle of August when it is 85 F with 90% humidity at 6 am.
