Yes I did, I had my boat in Ensenada for 6 mos. and crossed every weekend. As long as it's in your name and have a note from your DR. for extra safety, there is really no problem at all. But this was in 1998. Make sure you have everything in order and you will be fine. They will probably just wave you through the boarder but it's the federally's that you have to worry about if they stop you.
