Re: Truck delivery
In the end, a deliver skipper and truck are probably going to be similar in cost and you will pay for quality in either.
The choice is between these factors, as I see it.
The delivery is probably much easier on the boat, as everything doesn't need to be dismantled and a hull sitting on a cradle for a thousand miles can't be good for it. The exception is the engine, which will get a workout.
The truck will be more reliable and much faster. You'll get her back on the water at home relatively quickly, but it can be an unbelievable PITA to coordinate all the rigging, hauling, launching, etc, etc.
