Best, Cheapest way to get Sailboat from SoCal to NorCal

Looking at buying a Newport 30' and there are a bunch in Southern California and not much in northern. Does anyone know how much it cost to truck and or sail?

Also how much to have the mast taken down and put back up?

And while your at it, any other boats to look at other than the Newport 30'?

It really depends on what kind of sailing you're looking to do. The Newport 30' is a good coastal cruiser. Other comparable boats would be the Catalina/Hunter/Beneteau/Jeanneau/Pearson/O'Day/C&C/Tartan boats of that size. How much to step and unstep the mast depends on where you do it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I rewired my mast last Dec. The yard charged $125 / hour for the crane, plus a mast cradle rate.

Just sail her up, if you've ever done any offshore work at all.
