We used United Yacht Services in Florida to ship our OA from Florida through the canal and dropped at Ensenada. We didn't have the time to bring it back to CA on it's own bottom. They do go both ways and were very helpful. We gave up on the idea of trucking our boat when we found out we would have to remove the fly bridge and pay California for 3 chp escort vehicles from the California border to the delta. Since it would take 4 or 5 days because the truck wouldn't be allowed on the freeways, it was VERY cost prohibitive. Also, transport by truck can be very damaging to a hull on rough roads. Best of luck!

Yes they can if there is a foreign port between USA ports.

Since the Jones act was originally passed into law in 1920 I agree, you should not go there.
