Re: Transport of boat over land
Errrr... there's an ocean there, isn't there? Unless the boat is already decommissioned for shipping, and possibly on its own trailer, it's nearly ALWAYS going to cost more to truck a boat than to deliver it on water. At a guess, I'd say $5k from LA to Seattle by truck, if you aren't in a big hurry. Might use that as a reference & go looking for experienced delivery skippers. The haul up the coast is not a doddle, by any means, but if the boat has a decent motor, you should be able to get it there cheaper than five grand. And it will be comissioned and ready to go.
