The first trucking quote was $3000 to ship it to Mystic.
I'm in shock...sticker shock. Are these prices in line or am I just spoiled at my marina?
Prices and pitfalls of hiring a delivery captain? Is it worth it for a 30 ft boat?
No, I can't get the time off now to deliver the boat myself. Although I would love to.
Contact Jon Eisberg, he's a member here, and one of the more competent delivery captains out there. Probably one of the few I'd let deliver my own boat and I am a picky MFer'.. Also don't forget the labor on the other end to remove from trailer, block and stands, re-launch, re-step, tune, etc. etc... Jon I would suspect to be quite a bit less that the 5k plus you're looking at...
