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.
that would be a delivery crew for a least ten days and 1400 miles. if it cost $5000 then the crew would be getting about $ 10 per hr. I think trucking will be cheaper.
