This past summer, friends of mine trucked their s/v from FL to CT for less than $2,000. rigger charged them $200 and they rented a crane to pick up their boat over the sea wall for less than $500. So, lets say the crane in CT is $1,000 and a rigger up there is $400.. the whole trip's cost $4,100. That's a lot of miles from Tampa bay to CT. In short hellosailor is right, call different truck companies, get the best price and get over the road ins for the boat. Cheaper in the long run.
