Haul out Options
I have a deal pending to buy a '82 Hunter 30 currently in the water a Lake Allatoona, GA. The road block is in getting it hauled out for a survey and subsequent bottom job.

Can't find a marina with haul out capability on Allatoona and am looking at what other options could be viable and not cost prohibitive - rent a boom truck or some other option like a lift trailer....??????

Any ideas, contacts, links, etc would be appreciated.

How did they get the boat IN the lake?

May need to rent or hire a hydraulic sailboat lift trailer, like those that Brownell uses.

How much is the average cost to haul out a 30' boat, leave it on the hard for say 10 days while the bottom paint is redone, then relaunch it?

Chances are that you will need a hydraulic trailer so it really depends on how close one is to you. If they have to drive 100 miles to get to the lake, it will be a lot more expensive than if there is already one on the lake. Another potential cost is if the mast needs to come down. Usually, this requires bringing a second crane truck which will double the cost.

Is there a well made cradle for it?

Looks like I've found a guy with a 44' trailer that can haul it, scrape it and paint it. Where there's a will there's a way - I do love her lines!
