Hi. Thanks for adding your comment to the discussion.

I bolded a statement you made above. Please elaborate what you meant by "go with it."

Do you mean the cargo ship that will take your boat down will allow you along as a passenger on that same cargo vessel? Which shipping company? Do they ship only boats? Or is your boat to go as 'deck cargo?"

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as it could help us decide on our next home!
Yes, I live on the West Coast & was unable to find a boat I liked up and down the Western Seaboard. Bought one one the East Coast. Quote to truck to WA was tough: $23,000 USD for a 42' 13.8' height, 12.5' beam with 58' mast. Couldn't swallow this, but I bought the boat anyway. Planning to sail her around to Texas (privately), then truck to SoCal for about $8k plus yard fees. Panama Canal fees ($3k+) and hassle doesn't look worth it.

I'm planning to keep the boat for a few decades, so I got the boat I really wanted. Side benefit has been some light East Coast cruising this summer. But you can't maintain a boat 3,000 miles from your home base, so she has to get home soon.

Contact http://www.lockviewmarina.com/ as they are an excellent boat transport company. They often make cross country hauls. You may be able to schedule a shared haul and save some $.

Whatever transport company you use check their insurance and bonding. Your insurance company may offer advice too.

Howdy Mal.

Thanks for sharing the cost info on the boat transport quote.

Sounds like a good plan to sail it to Kemah and truck to West Coast and then sail it home.

I took a look at Zimaz (and specs).

That is one sexy looking boat! Just my type.

Have any photos of the interior?

Very good, and thanks. Almost no one gets it, which is fine with me.
