Trucking 26ft Florida to Seattle

Looking at this boggles my brain. I cannot think of an alternative. Looking at 10 years in Seattle. Can''t live that long without her.Thoughts, ideas, time of year best?

buy or trailer and haul it yourself. It''s not that expensive and you will probably use it again in the future.

Would love to do that. Did I forget to mention the fixed keel, I guess I could remove it. From what I understand though, her beam at 9.6 is in the range of a wide load.

I have trailered your Paceship''s cousin, a Cal 2-27 a couple thousand miles across three states. The overwidth issue is not too bad, averages about $40 per state. Can be done with the right trailer and a heavy duty 3/4 ton pickup or larger.

But, there are a lot of boats in the Puget Sound, many adapted for cruising in the islands. Things like dodgers and cabin heaters installed by PO''s. (Required item, no A/C needed!!) We don''t see too many Paceships, but the Hunt designed Cal 3-27 is found in abundance. Strongly suggest you consider selling and buying at the new location. The PNW boat market is the most buyer friendly in years.

Enjoy the area!!

Had my Catalina 40 brought up to the northwest from the southeast this past June. Beautiful sailing ground here but it is a little chilly.

If you don't want to buy a trailer that is sufficient to the task and deal with all the permits yourself...contact Brownell's Boat Yard, in Massachusetts...they specialize in moving sailboats.

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.

The cost of trucking your boat that distance will be a considerable portion of it's worth. If you can put aside the sentimental attachment, jparker's suggestion may well make the most sense from a practical and financial standpoint. Lots of boats around in that size range, appropriately equipped for the area will be found for sale, and you may even find a paceship, especially if you look around north of the border.
