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.

Thanks

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

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

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.

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!
