Hi CF - been a member
for a while, but recently started posting
and being active on CF... I hope I have helped some, and made others scratch their heads...
Anyway - 2 boat owner, and I need to get the big one to Pickwick lake in TN from Hatteras NC, so I can finish her refit
locally where I am at the moment... I would like some advice on whether or not transporting the boat a few hundred miles to the Ohio
river, or further to Knoxville on the Tennessee river and piloting her to Pickwick (junction of the Tenn and Ten-Tom) seems like a reasonable idea come this spring...
Boat is a 48 Wauquiez Pilot Saloon
, shoal draft
of 5'-10", stump of a mast
, maybe 30' above the waterline...
Assuming this is a delivery
, and not a pleasure cruise
, traffic and locking…
1) How long would it take to get to Pickwick from Pittsburgh on the Ohio
2) Same question Knoxville to Pickwick on the Tennessee?
3) Any draft
or other hazard/major annoyance with either???
I can have the boat trucked all the way to Pickwick, but at 8-10K, I would rather spend this money
on boat goodies….
Finally… If anybody has recent experience with a good and reasonable trucking transporter, I would love to hear about them!
