Smile Alaskan Cruiser from Sitka

We live in Sitka, Alaska when we are not traveling. We have lived in Alaska since 1970 and still love it. We move our trawler south in the winter and back north for the summers.
Although we have traveled the Inside Passage many times it always shows us something new and exciting.
We have been keeping our boat in Canada as we do not want to pay the "Use Tax" to the STATE OF WASHINGTON. Currently it is a little over 10% of the value of the vessel when it first enters the waters of the State of Washington.
We do visit Seattle and the various ports in the State of Washington but we are very careful to avoid overstaying our grace period. We have tried to support the economy of the State of Washington but we end up spending more than we should in British Columbia.
We are looking forward to a planned passage to Mexico the fall and winter of 2019. We are hoping to join FUBAR in San Diego.
Any suggestions on Mexico will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome! Looks like you and Crusty Chief may be heading to Mexico during the same timeframe. We are retired too and do the Inside passage for the past two summers. Good luck

Well, I haven't heard those names since my Fantasia Travel days back in the 80's and 90's!

Nice to see you stayed in our wonderful state.

Welcome! You'll find a bunch of good people here with a sea-full of knowledge. I wish you luck. We lived in Mexico for a year & sailed from Ensenada to Cabo. Lots of places to visit along the Pacific coast. The Sea of Cortez has something in the range of 900 islands to explore.
