Zach did a lot of research and traveling for this book. He last posted here in 2009, I think... I am sure lot's of people met him in Baja. I am always bummed to see dead web sites... The book is about the size of Peterson's Baja Adventure Book.

Hook mentions some:
Not a fishing board. A board where people who cruise or just day trip can talk about boating issues, especially anchoring locations, marinas, fuel docks, GPS coordinates, maintenance, parts, documentation, etc.

Since a beacon is defined as "an intentionally conspicuous device designed to attract attention to a specific location."

How about a name like:

Baja Beacon or Baja Boater's Beacon or simply Boater's Beacon or maybe El Faro-The Baja Boater's Board

and maybe a description like:

From kayaks to trawlers, sailboats to powerboats, here's the place to go for questions, answers, and anything nautical along the Pacific Ocean and in the Sea of Cortez.

Hey, this is a work in progress :lol:. Let's get some other suggestions out here for Doug.

It appears that it's a done deal; the creation of the board, based on BajaNomad's comment above.

Really, all he appears to be looking for is a description. He may want to keep the name simple like Baja Boating.

This one?



It is written by a Baja Nomad and he was here for a while talking about it... I will see if I can find his post with ordering details... :light:

ZThomas exchanged details beginning in this thread on 8-4-2008: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=32857

Sadly, the web page is no longer online. The ISBN number is: 978-0-615-18846-1

The book is jam packed with information and photos!

A bit on the pricey side. The cheapest used copy thru Amazon is $200.

Baja Power and Sail - Information on the Sea of Cortez, Pacific Ocean. Boats, equipment and information for the power or sail boater - NOT for fishing topics

Good suggestion and might just be a well-used addition to this forum. It would be convenient to add yet another popular Baja topic to this already well-thought-out forum. I think we have many potential reader/posters for a boating/sailing/cruising board on BajaNomads. Doug is interested, so it looks good to go.


Here are just a few sources I know of from over the years spent gunkholing all over the SOC that I keep in my bookcase and on my computer:

http://www.latitude38.com/index.lasso San Diego magazine
http://www.baja-haha.com/ The Rally
The Baja bash..bajapassagemaker.com
Cruisersforum.com
Sailmagazine.com
Sailbaja.com
Sailnet.com
Trailboating in Baja - Zack Thomas
The Log - Mexico Cruising 101
http://ac6v.com/nets.htm ..... listings of Baja Ham radio nets.
Mexico Boating Guide publication
"Mexico to Panama" from Yachtsman Chart Book.
"ChartGuide" Mexico West - 1982 (a collectors item nowadays)

and my old The Sea Guide to Baja....another oldie shown before.

Got a few more tucked in here and there, but just not ready to tackle that haystack. Some are still going, and some just fade out.

I would also suggest a place in San Diego called Map Centre. Can check these, too...Maptech, Sailing Directions. For a good stroll, walk around Shelter Island for ideas, sources, etc.

If one can condense a lot of this info towards a board on Nomads just for boaters....I would love it and be an avid reader/poster.


So, if another 'yes' vote counts, I toss mine in.




I do what the voices in my tackle box tell me.

Thank you, Doug.

Now, let's make sure we use it enough to justify Doug's efforts, guys and gals!
