New Boat Transport

I am looking to get a new boat 26' Sailboat. It is currently in Penetanguishene on Lake Huron/Georgian Bay. I would like to get it to Burlington Ontario. Lake Ontario is right at my doorstep. Do you have any suggestions on transport or sailing it down. I have never owned a boat this size. What would be the costs to store in a Marina for the winter. Also for Haul out and Put in and a slip for the summer months. If you could help me out with suggestions that would be appreciated. Also if you could suggest what type of boat this may be as the owner does not know the manufacturer.

Re: New boat transport

I have no idea what sort of boat that is but you are in the same situation I was in with my Grampian. It would take you 2-3 weeks to sail her down to Burlington if you took it slow, maybe a week if you really moved. I ended up hiring a tow truck to drag mine down, as it was on a trailer. Being on a cradle you will have to hire a boat mover to do the job. As for keeping it on Lake Ontario, I'd say you are looking at $3500-4000 a year average to keep it in a marina which would include dockage, lift in, lift out winter storage, and mast up and down. Best to shop around.

This is just a thought but there are a lot of trailer sailors that slip their boats for the "season". That means there are trailers without a boat on them this time of year. It may be possible to find someone with just the trailer you need that could use a few bucks. Sailors help sailors. ;-)
