I'm glad to hear that somebody else has taken this route. By the way, I can't wait, I'll be driving there Thanksgiving to bring home template parts I need to fab as well as the engine and this winter I'll be sewing sails. She can stay in the barn till I get everything else lined out like a cradle. I don't think she will be as top heavy as many but I won't take any chances. I am waiting on bids but with what they seem to be, I could own my own rig to move anytime I please. I call that freedom. If you had paid a hauler 5 times to the Keys, that would buy a decent boat. Thanks for your input.
