Doesn't seem (to me) to make much sense for AK to be buying a $10-15K boat on the East Coast if he'll need to ship it to the West. The costs of trucking will be half again or more of the original price... not much economy there.

There should be acceptable vessels available between the Puget Sound area and Alaska, even Prince Rupert would be a place to have a good look - any further away and it wouldn't be advisable to try to sail the boat "home" to Alaska.

Of course, AK, if you're planning to move to Florida or other points south and east that's a different story!
