Here's my problem and tentative plans...
I'm in the market for an offshore boat of a specific make in the 36' foot range. Although Seattle is one of the larger boating capitols, offshore cruisers are fairly rare around these parts, and odds are, I'll have to go East for my purchase.
I have had approximated quotes to haul a 36' sailboat west from say NY to Seattle in the $9K range (excluding any decommissioning), and approximately $7K from the Michigan/Great Lakes area.
Another option, and the one I will probably be choosing, is to have a trailer built (most likely by Sailboat Transporter Trailers) for around $8K and pick the vessel up myself. If I combine this excursion with a mini vacation, the trailer is almost free, and I now have the ability to haul her out and take her home for any major rework.
