Yo n8, if you don't mind me asking, how much was it to truck cross country? That would be some pretty valuable information for people thinking about doing the same (like the Bumfuzzles listing their costs for virtually everything) - and I didn't see a figure in your blog.

Re: Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

Hello, I am also looking at Offshore 41's and wonder what you can now add as to how well you like the boat, what is really good, what is not so good, and what you have had to done to repair and upgrade her. By the way, I looked at, but did not physically see, the Cheoy Lee for sale in Santa Barbara, which I now see is sale pending. Any comments and suggestions concerning the CL Offshore 41 would be greatly appreciated. Thx, Jon, err, Desert Pirate.

Re: Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

Did you ever receive a reply as to just what it cost to transport the Cheoy Lee 41 from the East to the West coasts? Some "real" information on such a move might be helpful to me, and others.

Re: Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

I shipped my boat from Annapolis to San Diego. I found a shipper on uShip and negotiated a deal for $8500, all taxes included. The preparations at the yard in Maryland cost $1438.50. I flew cross country with Natalie (my awesome pregnant wife) and with help from my Mom, Dad, Sister and her husband got the boat all packed up for shipping, the rigging removed from the masts and the masts wrapped in bubble wrap for shipping.

The yard bill in San Diego was more than I expected. There was cracking in the gel coat on the bottom of the keel that I had repaired while the mast foot was being replaced. The total bill for the repairs and launch was $1410.86.
Insurance on this baby with $500,000 liability is $742.90.

It's been quite a trip to get the boat habitable, but my wife and I are living aboard now and expecting a baby boy to arrive any day now. Her due date is May 31.

I'm going to keep working on my site and make a new page for the Cheoy Lee and have another page for the costs or projects and then cruising.

We finally sailed the boat yesterday for the first time and it sailed beautifully! The wind in San Diego Bay south of the Coronado Bay Bridge was steady from the west at about 10 knots. There were some gusts and close hauled we got the boat up to just over 7 knots through the water! It was exhilarating sailing the boat.

So to sum it all up. $12092.26 is what it cost to get the boat insured, prepped and shipped from the Annapolis to San Diego. The boat is 44 ft overall.

Re: Proud new owner of a Cheoy Lee Offshore 41

Thanks for your prompt reply. As expensive as the shipping was, it sounds like a good price. I figured 10K! Was the insurance just for the trip out west, or is that your boat insurance for an entire year? There is another CL 41 for sale in Portsmouth, RI, asking 49K, and that's why I'm asking these questions. Thx

I'd love to see some pictures of the headliner project. That would be a good new thread.

The insurance was for the whole year, and not just for shipping. The shipper provided his own cargo insurance.

That's one strange comment-verging-on-a-putdown of a fast offshore proven Ray Richards design.

I had initially ignored that because my ketch does not have a bow sprit. :-D


See, there's no bowsprit!
