'I say bs. You can do this with a 3/4 ton pickup. "
Reminds me of the go-fast I saw in the express ramp of the Interstate maybe four years ago. Being pulled at around 75mph by a bice beefy pickup truck.
Couple of miles down the road, just after the express lanes merged back in, I see traffic ahead of me grinding to a halt and as we picked our way through four lanes of debris, a complete truck bumper in the middle of the highway, truck and boat down in the recharge pit, six cars already parked next to them calling in the rescue squads.
Yeah, you can do anything with the right equipment. You can do even more if someone who understands the regulations and has experience is doing it.
Build your own trailer? And then what, bronze it and stick it in your front yard? IF you want to DIY, buy the trailer and sell it again when you are done. Then you check out the size and weight limits for each state you plan to cross. Almost guaranteed to be cheaper, simpler, and faster to call some boat transporters, and ask them what you can do to get a price break.
If you say "I want a transport on Tuesday at 9AM" you'll likely pay twice what the same thing would cost you, if you say "You can pick it up anytime in the next six weeks". Or, just pay more to buy something you can sail home.
