I am considering the purchase
of a 36' ketch
, but need to weigh moving costs. I live in Texas
(some 900 miles away). I'm awaiting bids on uship, but was wondering if anyone had a name of a good shipper with accurate quotes - or even someone who had the necessary equipment
and would like to make some extra money
Details: Boat about 36' plus 10' bowsprit
, beam 11', height about 10' and weight about 9 tons - must be shipped by land because of some below the waterline repairs
that need to be done when she gets home.
I have no trailer, and would not be able to help load (although owner says that a u-shaped trailer with hydraulic supports can slide right under it)
Boat does need some work, so if I have to put too much into getting it here - I'll keep looking.
