Cortez Coastal Carriers
"Queens of the Sea of Cortez"

Conceptualizing a development plan for the Sea of Cortez requires an elegant solution to the problems of low population and relative isolation experienced on its desert- shore perimeter.

The beauty and vitality of the sea is complimented by its constant good weather, making it ideal for slow cruising and pleasure boating. Herein lies the opportunity to create a stepping stone technology to enable sustained growth and support shore development along the entire beach front of the Sea of Cortez.


A small floating port and ferry with a luxury hotel onboard able to host all the basic needs of civilization, Cortez Coastal Carrier Cruises can be advertised throughout North, Central and South America, targeting recreational vehicle owners, sport fishermen, scuba divers and eco-tourists. As development gets underway freight and worker transport will be basic functions. A minimum number of Carriers will be needed to enable reliable service at multiple ports, but an initial group of five or six should be able to establish the business.


The CCC is designed to service shore communities via hovercraft and small boats. Helicopters can land aboard  as well. Roll-on Roll-off of trucks, RVs and passenger cans can be done at ports with appropriate facilities and/or motor vehicles can be discharged via the hovercraft.

Tractor trailer rigs with ocean containers are the base size unit for the hovercraft and roll-on/roll-off facilities.

ABOUT THIS WEB SITE: The MetaAmerica Project web site is an ongoing effort to facilitate discussion about the long term potential of the US/Mexico and Arizona/Sonora economic development relationship. Planned additions to this site include discussion groups and consortia pages. The idea of consortia is rooted in the economic opportunity inherent in the investment required to develop the region, and the many significant technologies needed to do it. 

If you or your organization are interested in discussing these ideas on an e-group mailing list, please send a message.
