My family and I rented a sailboat from Mike Madlock and his company Go Baja Charters for $4K.

The vessel suffered two serious mechanical issues back to back durring our stay in Baja Mexico. The first issue was encountered the first night when we dropped anchor. The motor that is to retreave the anchor is called a Windlass. It failed within the first 5 seconds of use. We were stranded for 2 days waitng for repair. Once the windlass motor was repaired we attempted to continue with our vacation.

At our very next stop we discovered that the engine would not start again. We were once again stranded and this time for the remainder of our vacation. We were 50 knotical miles from the home base in La Paz.

In order to not miss our flights home we had to hire a local fisherman to ferry us back to La Paz at the cost of an additional $600.00. We never even got to set the sails.

For the past year Mike Madlock has played the victim card stating that he needs to keep that rental money to repair his fleet and to compensated for a car wreck his wife had on her way to deliver a repairman to the vessel we rented. After dozens of emails and attempted phone calls, he has yet to return ANY of the rental fee.
