Suddenly there is a high demand for slips and rates rise.

Rates have gone up twice in the last year at Marina de la Paz. Last year I paid $1600USD in La Cruz and in Barra de Navidad, so I expect those prices to make their way to La Paz. I was just moved to a larger slip and the cost is $1399.

I know that boating is a rich man's game now, and I'm not rich. My boat is going on the market any day now. Anybody interested in a Californian 52 CPMY fully rigged for cruising? IT COMES WITH A SLIP!!!

Cheers, Bill
I agree with this sentiment generally. I do not blame the marina operators, it is just a mismatch between supply and demand for moorage and they have very good pricing power. I will leave the Sea of Cortez early for this reason. I have an 80 foot slip in Puget Sound that will hold the cat and the cost is less than half of La Paz. Let that sink in a minute. Puget Sound half as expensive as La Paz. That is a clear market signal which I will obey.
