Boat Transport - 30ft sailboat

I had my 34'' Yorktown, 11'' beam shipped up from Marina Del Rey to Morro Bay, California last year. A distance of about 220 miles. Due to traffic conditions it needed to be split into a two day haul. I received estimates from $800.00 all the way up to $2,400.00. I didn''t want to just pick one at randem so I called around to the yards in Marina Del Rey and asked who they used most often to ship vessels for them. I was surprised to find out it was the guy who quoted me $800.00. He did an excellant job and went to great lengths to make sure my boat arrived in good order. If I were to do it again, I would call around to the boat yards and ask them who does THEIR hauling. I think if you do this you will get sound advice. Regards, Peter
