Trailering a boat

I just purchased a Bristol 35. Now I have to get it home.
1. Does anyone know of a trailer for sale that could be used for this?
2. Would it be possible to use a flat bed trailer and the stands and tie it down.
3. Would it be possible to use a flat bed trailer and build a cradle and tie it down?
4. Does anyone know of a good boat moving company able to move a boat from Englewood FL to Daphne AL?

Yes I know it's a heavy boat- 12,500 lb, I've towed out 33 ft sport fisher with a dry weight of 12,000 lbs many times north GA to FL.
Yes I know the beam is 10' as was our sportfisher- no I never got permits and never had problems.
Yes I know the boat needs a lot of work and I'm very excited to get it.
Yes this is the boat that over40pirate had for sale- yes I got it off ebay from the buyer.
Yes I'm nuts but that's ok

Re: Trailering a boat

I don't know of a boat moving company but that would be the easiest and safest way o move it over the road. The center of gravity of this load will be much higher than that of the sport fisher. It's going to be a bit unstable unless it's done right.


Why can't you move it on the water? Sail or motor?

Re: Trailering a boat

It's not ready to sail and motor is inoperable. There's a lot of work to do before it's to that point.
