Hi there,
I just reinrolled as ClintandJanet. We were janetandclint. I do not want to disguise ourselves. I just couldn't get on as the former identity.

Why are so many boats for sale in SC? Is it just the economy? Or something else? Would u devoted sailors give me some input?

We are interested in buying a sailboat down there, moderate to low priced. We have a Neptune 24 for sale in Elephant Butte. We don't want to tow it down.

probably because its a 700+ mile round trip to use your boat for a weekend,and after a year or two people realize that they acctually only go down there 1/4 as much as they thought they would,and that boat gets mighty expensive to store,maintain,insure for just one or two trips a year.be careful that all boat documentation is in order before you purchase or you could get taken advantage of by some sellers,unless you can afford to lose your investment, as i realize that to some lucky folks 50 thousand dollars is just pocket change,which in that case i would just charter and avoid all the hassels of ownership.

Am finding a variety of sailboats for sale in the San Carlos and Sea of Cortez area. Anyone have a suggestion, write me Private Message and tell me about the boat. We want something substantial, like from 28 foot and up. We can do some work on it. My husband is ex-Alaskan fisherman and boat worker. But of course, we prefer a ready to sail boat.

There are always quite a few boats for sale in SC for various reasons--none having to do with the quality of the sailing or living in Mexico-both of which are great.  Take advantage of it!  Just make sure you check out the boats well and have a good survey done.

Thank You for buying SOMEBODY's sailboat!! There is hope for me after all!

The problem is, the "Sailing Community" is slowly shrinking, not growing...rcarlson detailed the reasons...The younger generation is just not interested..

I thought it was just the sail down that tested the final straw of most marriages (hence many of the boats for sale). The sail back up to the north-west would be the true test of any marriage.

We bought a Mariner 31 that was sitting in Ranchitos. We are working on getting it back in the water. Hopefully within another month. (Si Dios quiere).

Thanks there Bruce, I know what u mean, just being optimistic and setting a goal. It doesn't matter when we get in the water, we are having so much fun and making so many friends. Oh, and really nice friends are visiting us.

We are looking for a Sailboat to buy to live on there. You warned of making sure that the proper documentation was given. Can you tell me what we need to make sure we get? We are looking for a lower to moderately priced boat to retire on.
Peace,
Nancy

You need the proof of ownership, either state registration or coast guard documentation for a US vessel and proof of insurance to use facilities of the marinas.

You will need to obtain a temporary import permit for the boat, which can be done online at http://www.banjercito.com.mx/site/siteBanjer/Bicentenario/iitv/instruccionesIITV.html
