Cheechako, I scour CL every night, from Washington
, DC to Long Island
. So far, if I can find a trailer that can handle the boat, it's $4000. Otherwise, I can find a trailer that's specifically designed for sailboats and can handle a 25' and is $850, but it only holds up to 3500 or 4000 lbs. Or they can hold 5000+ lbs, but (oddly) they can't handle a 25. Or they are a perfect combination of weight capacity, price
, and size capacity, but they are set up with rollers and no keel
support, and the rollers don't go high enough to provide good lateral support to the boat (they're set up for power boats).
You're right, an outboard
would get me there, but realistically, it would be about a 3 day sail. With cold weather
having already moved in, I'm not sure I want to try that trip right now, and the owner wants her gone from his slip.
Sorry...just getting frustrated. She's a very nice boat - needs a mainsail
, and sheets
, but her "bones" look very good - and its looking like I may have to pass on her, too, because it's just too expensive to move her.
