Boat shipper? Like to put your boat on a trailer and ship it over the road?

We just started looking today. The enine has a blown head gasket and we do not live where the boat is docked right now. And running out of time to get down to repair it to sail up. Don't know anyone in Ft Lauderdale and never had to transport a boat.

Re: Reasonable Boat hauler needed ASAP.

I gave you contact info and you should take advantage of it, his slip may be available for you to put your boat there, he can probably see your boat from his slip.

Pick up the phone! or don't...

Could always get a good anchor and put it out on a anchorage until you have time to mess with it.

Re: Reasonable Boat hauler needed ASAP.

From the outside looking in: Comparing the cost of derigging, preparing for over the road transport, loading onto a trailer, transport, unloading, unpacking and rerigging vs the cost of hiring a professional mechanic to repair the engine in your boat and hiring a delivery skipper, I suspect the later is much less expensive & easier ordination.

Re: Reasonable Boat hauler needed ASAP.

I agree with old frog. A blown head gasket can be done in a couple hours on an inline diesel.

I think you need to fix your engine issues, and then find cheap/free storage until you have time to transport it. Plenty of anchorages where folks will keep an eye on your boat, or a mooring field.

Re: Reasonable Boat hauler needed ASAP.

I would agree about the head gasket wouldn't take that much time. Over the road is going to be a waste of your limited funds. I recall the other thread. If push comes to shove get a bracket and a used OB and take the ditch to Jax..
