Re: Transport of boat over land

The hardest part of rail transport these days is finding a couple of hundred chinamen to build the railroad spur into your boatyard, and out to the one you want the boat delivered to.

If you don't build those two rail spurs, you have to have the boat hauled, blocked, unblocked, all that stuff twice for each end, and trucking becomes cheaper.

Ever try to find a couple hundred chinamen who'll work for less than full teamster rates these days? It ain't easy. And the marinas are going to charge you for every foot of ground space their camp tents occupy, too.
