Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

That's pretty good mileage, better than my sailboat. I don't know the Willard but have owned a 36' power boat and it had as much interior space as my 42' sailboat. Would think 30' wouldn't be...

Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

Interesting comment about the SF. My son in law just purchased a 56' Viking SF that came from Panama. He regularly goes 150-200 miles offshore to fish and occasionally the weather kicks up before...

Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

Very familiar with the trailers. Used them to move my boat, specifically hydraulic versions that allowed raising and lowering the clearance a good bit, at least a foot or more as I recall. When I...

Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

I will confirm the trucking company I use in my business but I do believe that you will need a commercial license to pull an oversize load permit and haul an oversize load cross country.

I looked specifically at the GB32. Vertical clearance without the mast is listed as 11'6". With a draft of 3'9" that is a total height of 14'3" The bed of the trailer is at least 2' over the...

Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

Actually it might not be possible to truck a 30' trawler. Specs I found for a couple of models show bridge clearance in the 17-20' range. Add another 4' or so for draft and a couple of feet for the...

Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

Sure, he could truck it himself. :biggrin:

With 11' plus beam on a 30' trawler all he would need to do is get a commercial trucking license, apply for over size load permits in four states, hire...

Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

Considering the trip is around 6,000 miles by sea, unless you get the deal of the century, any savings you realize in the purchase will be lost in moving the boat.

Unless you want to do this to...

Re: Nobody cruises from San Francisco to Miami

That will depend very much on the size of the boat, particularly beam and vertical clearance. A power boat with a bridge could easily exceed the vertical clearance limits which is around 13-14'...
