What is your plan for the boat, are you leaving it on a mooring or in a slip? Will you be having a marina launch and haul her, or will you need this equipment sooner rather than later? Train fare and truck rental is going to add up quickly. I would consider putting the money toward a tow vehicle, if you're going to need one anyway.

If they is just a one way trip and you'll not need the trailer again, I'm certain you could pay someone to drive up there and tow it back. Its a two day roundtrip, with one overnight.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
