Chall-

It looks like you've been pricing commercial freight to relocate the boat. Have you considered hiring a delivery crew? I have no experience in this, and I don't know how much it would cost, or if anyone would be will to deliver an older boat that distance, but I would think you'd be able to find someone who would be willing to take that on for about half of what you are estimating on freighting the boat.

Additionally, the delivery crew would want it loaded out with all the spares and equipment you would be adding for cruising anyway.

Just a thought.

Thanks, I have thought of all options to get a boat across the Pacific, like TD I to do it any other way than with me at the helm would be pretty disappointing!

It think also for the price/age we are looking in it just wouldn't add up, and that we are better off looking locally...
