I’m stuck. I’m buying
and it’s a couple hours away by car.
Lots of logistics issues.
1). The mast
is 59’ long.
2). The mast is on another boat
on the deck
3). The seller can’t get his boat
into any local marinas
(same size cat as mine)
4) the seller wants to take it off at a boat ramp
since there are no other options. The boat ramp
has several ramps, docks and a sea wall he can put his bows on to unload the mast into the parking lot. The parking lot is 100’ x 500’ and can accommodate tractor trailers. It has a 100’ wide entrance.
1). No local Marina will accept his boat or pull the mast or store the mast.
2) I’ve been trying to get Joule yacht transport to get the mast. I got a quote and everything. They will only pick up at a marina that won’t take the boat or mast. They are now dragging their feet at the whole thing and not returning calls to set things up.
3) my boat is not ready to go on a 3 day trip to go get it.
Does anyone know how I can move this thing in Florida
I’ve looked up all the laws and feel like I can buy a jet ski trailer
, use it as “wheels”, lights, etc and affix the front of the mast to my pickup truck in a flexible way. But everyone is saying not to do that.
Does anyone know of someone in Tampa/Fort Myers who could move this mast on road?
Anyone want to move it on deck
and get paid to do so?
I’m sorry for asking so many questions all the time here. These things are coming at me a mile a minute. I hope I’m not annoying everyone.
