Trucking a old wooden boat that size will be very dificult and very expensive. leaving and old wood boat out of the water for long periods of time is not go for them unless the reason you pulled it out is to repair or restore the hull. moving a boat like that to dry land so many miles from water is almost a sure death sentance for the boat.
Moving the boat by water to get it closer to home would be an adventure thats for sure and at least you would be get some use out of the boat. a boat like that is really better off near the sea where it belongs. the country is littered with boats like this that dreamer have moved to their home to restore and that was the death of the boat.
