28' beam, Voyage

Looking for a way to haul out a 28' beam anywhere in NC. How about underwater inflatable bags? Do they rent anywhere nearby? I know Charleston SC does a wide beam but a fortune to stay on the hard, yes they charge tdyow

See if you can find a hydraulic boat trailer or a place that pulls them out with a trailer on a ramp. It's travelifts that are the problem.

It's amazing all the difficulty of funding places to haul a beamy cat we have, since one could do it with a pickup truck and a trailer at a standard boat ramp.

Bridgeton Boatworks in New Bern I believe can handle your beam, and also Jarrett Bay Boatworks outside Beaufort. You will have to be able to clear 65 bridges.

Yes, I just looked and the old drawbridge at Beaufort has been replaced with a 65 ft fixed bridge, so can't get to Jarratt Bay unless you can squeeze under a 65 ft bridge, either way. Might have more clearance coming from north, through Ocracoke or Hatteras

I've also been hauled out by a 200 ton crane several times. They used two 30' spreader bars and it worked great. If you can get one to come to a marina many times they can just lift you up, rotate, and set you down.

Jarrett Bay is now trapped in between 2 65 bridges, shame as it was a great place to haul. Possibly have your stick pulled in Beaufort so you can clear the bridge?
I wonder if the old Gunboat facility is open in Wanchese.
