Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...
Jim, I just saw the thread...sorry for your troubles. If you really want to take her to Barnegat Bay, you may want to go by truck...not get towed. I looked up an estimate for a 31 footer from MD to NJ was just under a thousand. Look under Yachtworld...Services...Transport
I have no experience using the process; maybe someone here can provide the voice of experience.
Best of luck.
