As someone who has done the trip, you will find trucking the boat much cheaper than sailing it when you figure in the equipment
(you will be motoring a lot off the West coast) fees
the Canal etc, and general travel. If you are making a vacation
out it, do it and do it slowly and enjoy it. I figure it cost me twice as much to sail my boat from West to East as it would have to have had it trucked. In my case, worth it for the experience, but not cheaper.
