Hello everyone! My name is Tyler and the family
and I are wanting to cruise
the world within a year or two. I just bought a project
boat in Pampano Beach Florida
and am looking forward to a complete rebuild
. I own a restoration/hot rod shop in the Dallas area and although I'm not fully versed in boats, I do know the amount of labor and time needed for a refit
. The boat I purchased is a 39 Corbin. We are in the process of switching over the title, regs, and getting insurance
. Of course being new to the cruising world we have a ton of questions and are out of our comfort zone. Right where we want to be!
I guess the first questions/concerns is getting the boat to Galveston Tx. Seeing how this is a project
boat in every sense of the word we plan to stay in the intercoastal waterway. I need help to get the boat up to Stuart and then across the canal to Fort Meyers. Where should I post for help in this matter? Crew needed? Deal is that I'm uncertain of the condition of the drive line and may need to tow the boat with a tender
. Also this boat is a canoe stern and seems that it would be difficult to mount an outboard
. Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated!
