It has been awhile since I was doing yacht delivery, but many a boat, both sail and power, has been brought to Galveston from Florida and other east coast locales for West Coast destinations. I don't know if things have changed in the past 15 years or so when it comes to trucking permits, but that was the main reason for going to Galveston. From Texas west, overweight, overlength, wideload, etc. permits, (not to mention routes for overpass clearances etc.), were far easier and cheaper to obtain than the southeast states, thus the "on their own hull" deliveries to Galtex were warranted. I remember seeing a 60 foot Hatteras SF,(flybridge removed but on the same trailer), head west on a lowboy with so many tires, I quit counting. But, of course, the over-the-road boat transport companies surely would have the latest.
