Transportion costs East to West coast

Wow! I actually have something to contribute!

I had my 35'' boat shipped from Newport, RI to Deale, MD, and the cost was right at $1200. You will obviously be looking at several times that figure. Do a search on the net on "boat shipping" and you will get many shippers, many shipping agents and many advice columns on how to go about it. Once I found the right one (I used an agent, and it worked out well) I didn''t have to do anything other than fill out the papers and wait. Estimates ranged from $1000 to $2200. You have to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff.
