Re: Moving a 35 ft, yes I know permits, more in depth.

Homemade trailer based on a (free) single, "low boy" big rig trailer axle.
Boat weighs 16,500 lbs.
Tow vehicle is a borrowed 3/4 ton pick-up.
Trailer is not "dunked" into water.
Boat is loaded/unloaded with travel lift.
Weight of boat is supported by the tires throughout the storage period.

I highly recommend getting set up for trailering home during winter. Saves money and makes projects happen many times faster.

Steve

Went stacked to hold a load they crack as though you were pulling down a zipper. A good way to drop a load or worse yet get yourself killed. On the same note a hydraulic jack will zipper if not shimmed so that the load is in line with the ram.

Thanks hello sailor and Cadence! That was what I thought but just hadn't heard the term before.

Re: Moving a 35 ft, yes I know permits, more in depth.

So an update, I found a local place that will tow my boat, so that won't be an issue, I think I want to go with a trailer though, as it kills some of the logistics of loading/unloading it off a flat bed. So I am still looking for a place that sells them or finding one used. I have one final question, what is the avg cost of haul out on to a trailer and stepping the mast, when your not going to be staying at the marina, I would assume there would be an up charge?

Re: Moving a 35 ft, yes I know permits, more in depth.

I also had my boat moved by great lakes marine, it cost about twice as much as the cheapest storage yard in the milwaukee area, but about half the price was buying stands and blocks, next season, it will probably be the same as paying the yard fee, but much more convenient then driving an hour each way to work on the boat. If you are planning a move to the coast eventually it might be worth it to have your own trailer, when I was looking into it I found a place in Georgia that builds sailboat trailers , I think they were in the 10 to 12000 price range.

In the Houston area, assuming you provide the labor to set the mast and tune the rig, you would be looking at approx $250-$350 one way for the rig and another $350 or so to haul and set on the trailer. So roughly $700 to get the boat on the trailer with you providing labor for the mast.
