Last summer we helped a friend move a 25 ft houseboat from Hamilton to Scarborough. The houseboat had a V8 GM engine
. We chose a day when there was no wind
(boat moves easier on flat water), burned about 120 litres of gasoline, our speed was about 4-5 knots, took about 9 hours from dock
. Our friend was quoted $900 to move the boat on land by trailer.
Take a look at what the distance is between Hamilton and Scarborough, then Scarborough to Kingston and do your own calculations. Then get quotes from boat movers and compare with what it would cost for you to move it.
It all depends on what type of boat you have, what is your cruising speed, what is your fuel consumption
and of course how comfortable you are doing it. It can make for a nice trip, though, especially if you carefully chose the weather
and make a couple of overnight stops.
