Chesapeake Bay Delivery Help for 1997 35 foot Sloop

I'm looking for help delivering a 1997 Caliber 35LRC from Williamsburg, VA to Herrington Harbor (about 110 miles - 2 to 3 days). I will cover all costs and will pay reasonable amount for experienced crew. Boat has onboard Origo heat. Timeframe is next week, weather dependant. Reply to jimsmail101 at email dot com.

i would be happy to help on your delivery, however, i am in key west and would need to get a ticket from here to there plus per diem and it would probably not be worth the cost. i am a 100 ton captain and have lived on and off my sailboat for 20 years. if you are interested, let me know. john

As a W&M grad I'd love to help, but I can't clear my schedule that fast. Keep me posted via PM if the schedule slips. Can I assume the boat is on the York River? Just curious on the exact starting point.

I'd like to help, however it would have to be over a weekend as I can't currently take off that much time from work. Let me know and I can take off a monday and/or friday.

Limited experience, but easy going and love to sail. Basically would sail for food and a little gas money.

I'd be happy to help if you would cover transportation from Arlington down to WMburg, and HH back to Arlington. Steve

Thanks for all the replies-the delivery is done

Thank you all for your replies. I found a local sailor who helped with the delivery. He and I have a similar background and experience and he is local to the area. Between him and me and my two friends (who don't sail, but do cook and tell jokes!), we had a great 19 hour delivery with the bay nearly to ourselves. This message board is great!
