Re: trucking boat west

CF is not the best place to ask for a quote. Try a Google search for boat transportation companies. But expect a MASSIVE bill. For an example I was quoted a little over $4000 USD to move a boat 1,000 miles. You're shipping your boat 3 times as far. Expect close to $10,000. Assuming your boat is not overly wide or tall. To get an accurate quote, you will need LOA, max beam, height of the boat from the keel to the top of the highest nonremovable item on the boat, length of the unstepped mast and gross weight of the boat. Don't forget the cost of the crane at either end. Prior to shipment, ensure your boat is fully prepped. Mast unstepped, bow and stern pulpits removed, sanctions and lifelines removed, helm removed, rudder secured so it won't move, prop removed, all hatches and ports covered and secured. All moveable interior items secured. All fluids (especially fuel and oil) removed and water tanks drained. Your holding tank must be emptied (and preferably cleaned). Don't forget to stow and secure your anchor and chain (remove it if possible). Remove the batteries as well. Hope this helps and good luck.
