Need trucking advice

Our vessel has been wintering in VA and we need to utilize Canadian waters and the Seaway to return to Lake Ontario.
Scuttlebutt has the Erie Canal Will be closed to navigation due to budget short falls from covid19.
We are now looking at trucking our schooner when emergency conditions subside.
Any suggestions/ experience with boat movers would be most appreciated.

I had my Hans Christian 43 ketch moved from Connecticut to Kingston using Andrew’s trucking out of Niagara. Very satisfied with their service.

Hey Mike,

Here's another thread just a couple of pages from yours that has a bunch of recommended boat transporters:

Good luck!

Re: Need trucking advice

We are in the same except for being heading to Michigan. Joule Yacht Transport is who we settled on partly due to their good communication and willingness to quote in a timely manner. They have a good reputation and 25 rigs on the road and can haul on our schedule. I contacted a dozen or so operators and got responses from a third of them. Joules price was also quite acceptable. Later in July I can report on the results.
