Boat Storage Question
So for my first post, I have a boat storage question.
I have an opportunity to obtain a "free" 1970's 29' Islander that needs alot of work in and out of the cabin. Never having owned a sailboat, I would like to store this at my house instead of a boatyard so I can spend the necessary time repairing it.
In order to obtain this boat, I would be resonsible for hauling and trailoring it to my house, approximately 40 miles away from the Bay. Before calling and checking the haul and shipping rates, I would like to find out what type, what size, and how many boat stands I may need along with any orther storage items that I may be over looking.
Here are the boat mesaurements that I know:
The boat displaces 7,800 lbs, with 2,800 lb in the keel. The beam is 8' 10.5", length 29' 1", draft 3' 8"
Any advice or input from you all would be greatly appreciated.
