I currently live on the US east coast, though I have unfortunately found my ďDream boatĒ for sale in Australia. Itís a 43 ft sailing boat, so what I am asking about is this:

What is a very rough estimate of the cost of shipping this boat to the US? Iím very flexible on shipping location as I would be ok sailing the boat from the Panama Canal if I needed to

Legally, how much of a hassle am I dealing with?

What pitfalls have people experienced when shipping their boats that arenít really apparent until you have undertaken the expense?

And lastly I have done quite a bit of research here, so please refrain from the ďdo your researchĒ comments, Iím mostly asking for peoples experiences with somewhat similar things
PM if you need any help getting either the boat checked out or transport ideas and quotes etc. Regards Geoff.

I have no idea about the shipping cost (I guess it will be high). But I am very curious about the boat you are trying to buy!! Is it too much to ask for pictures?...
