Need Help Moving Boat - San Diego > Savannah

Hi all I may need help bringing a 30'-36' boat back from San Diego, CA to Savannah, GA or Charleston, SC, I should be able to help get it as far as RoadTown in the BVI, but from there will have to fly back home to attend school, so since I need the boat in the States I would greatly appreciate it if anyone who wanted to help have some expiriance and maybe have a partner. Thanks, Little Otter.

Contact me

I think I can get a partner who can help us out. We will need some details of course. I think you can reply to this via email.

Is this for a purchase in the future? Will you yourself have the skills to run the boat alone, or are you looking for someone to teach you along the way?.....i2f

This time of the year wouldn't it be more prudent to truck the boat? Possibly less expensive too since you will need to leave the boat?.....i2f

I would think that since you haven't bought the boat yet (and don't even know the size), that you may want to wait until you know what boat, and where it lays, before you line up a crew.

You might even find a boat close to you.

Ah, the impetuousness of youth - well, that is why we older ones are around.

Looking at Islander 36, for future (2or3weeks), I may have it trucked cuase i can do that for 4k or less, But I would need someone who knows what they're doing because I would have to depart at RoadTown, BVI to go back to school, By the way I like the new pic i2f, I also like the name Big nice choice!!

I don't think you are going to truck a boat from San Diego, CA to RoadTown, BVI.

If you move it yourself will you do it single handed? How would you handle the Panama Canal?

I bet you could find a boat for sale in FL and save a bunch of time and money.

Questions for potential Captain's:
What due diligence would you do before you would bring a boat to the USA. Would you search it before you departed? What about a title search?

Don't get me wrong I'm not pointing any fingers just wondering how you protect yourself.

Good eye Randy that's close, it's actually a panther jet one of the first jets used in the US military, that's really good considering it's not a very good pic.

Try truckaboat.com or something like that. The guy's name is Bud.
Seriously, look to buy a boat in Florida, or there's lots here in the BVI.
BVI Yacht Sales Ltd. or wander around Spanish Town.
