Has anybody some experience with land transport within the US?
A company able to transport the boat without taking out the mast maybe?

Pls help.

Exactly how is the boat supposed to get under bridges, overpasses and power lines if the mast is still up? A Caliber 33 probably has a 38-40' mast, and very few roads have a vertical clearance of 50'+ for their entire length.

Brownell and several others can transport your boat for you, and you can e-mail or call them for price quotes. Being flexible on the pickup/delivery dates can often save you some money on the transport... You will probably need to pay for escort vehicles as your boat probably qualifies as a wide load in most states.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
