Re: Moving 42' Sailboat from Florida to Seattle

I live in NW Florida and have sailed the Gulf of Mexico extensively. Have never been to Texas, but have been to Mexico. The Gulf is a beautiful place to sail, and coming up the west coast of Florida, the longest passage you will have to make without a place to stop is 235 miles from Clearwater to Panama City. There are some stops available, but time consuming ones, so we usually just make the run.

Sailing your boat from Florida to Texas is a fantastic way to learn your boat's sailing characteristics in a friendly setting.

The only problem I can see is that if you sail in the Gulf you may end up moving here.

Re: Moving 42' Sailboat from Florida to Seattle

Hi just had a quote to truck a 38 morgan from ft lauderdale to seattle with uship, 10,300 & 10,400, which I thought was a reasonable price for the miles. Easiest windward miles EVER!!!! lol

Re: Moving 42' Sailboat from Florida to Seattle

If we were talking houses, would have it moved?

Sell the boat you have, and buy another boat at your destination.

You might want to consider the current floating debris from Japan.

That is a good quote for sure. I got a quote 2 years ago for a 31 footer and it was nearly $11k! and it was a Trawler that didnt need overheight issues.

There are a lot of flaky fly by night truckers on UShip. I used them 3 times and had 2 very bad experiences.

Amen! I shipped with UShip, and east of Denver, the driver unhooked from my 32' sailboat and left it along side the Interstate while he drove on, looking for repairs for his water pump. I just happened to call him and found out. He was going to leave it till the next day. I called the Highway Patrol, and saved them from impounding my boat. I struck off to Denver and completed the move myself! It was one of the more stressful things I ever went through. Would I ship with UShip again? Lets just say, I would try not to.

Re: Moving 42' Sailboat from Florida to Seattle

....Similar story...The first one transported my boat across the country with the drum of the furler dangling 4 ft. out bobbing up and down, finally bending it. The second showed up late and had to keep stopping to re-adjust his shaky trailer stands. The yard where the boat was going had moved everything temporarily outside their gate to accommodate me as well as the crane waiting. Everything was closed up when he finally arrived. I had to pay an extra crane and yard fee for his screw up.
