Hauling boat home for painting
 
Has anyone had their boat (we have an E27) hauled and put on the hard in their own yard - as in residence? And if so, how? how much? and which hauling company?

How did you haul your boat into your yard?

Thanks in Advance!

Yes. I had a C30 hauled to my house for about 6 months. From Annapolis to Southern New Jersey was $900. Then my house to the marina (in NJ about 60 miles) was $500. I also had the expense of building stands which cost me about $200. I could get you the names and numbers of the hauler if you're in the NJ to MD area.

There is a fairly high initial expense in the jack-stands and at 125 dollars each i was Not going to fool around threading shaft and adjustment handles

How you cover the boat is a BIG deal for two reasons as around here this is legally a membrane structure and is NOT LEGAL so we played tag taking it up and down as needed

The other BIG ISSUE is Not turning your yard into a superfund sight as there is a lot of freaking dust involved :eek:and as i am on concrete it was easy to keep things form soaking into the soil

Seafever is pretty easy to move and as far as cost we have a deal with the truck guy BUT is 400 dollars TWO times a year PLUS the boat yard cost

Zzzoom is a bit more of a PITA to move due to the 7' draft :)

I would call it a convenience more than a money saver as i still spend about 2K per year moving it with the yard costs BUT its great to have all my tools 5' away in a secure place ;)

The biggest possible issue is local zoning laws as in Seafevers neighborhood its legal in the driveway and down the road 7 miles away Zzzoom has to be behind the home :eek:

I had my 28' 8000 lb S2 put on the hard in my side yard. She was hauled about 70 miles one way and was on the hard for three years while I started my business. It cost $150 for the haulout, $600 one way to my house. I bought used jackstands for $60 each which the hauler purchased back from me later for $40 each.
While she was there, I replaced the standing rigging, and replaced the 6.5 hp Yanmar 1gm with a 13 hp 2GM and bottom painting. There were other minor tasks as well.
Having her put back in the water was another $600 trip back to the water and another $150 trip in the water.

Hauling
 
Hi and thanks for all your help! How did you find the hauler and I'm guessing that they set the boat on the hard in your driveway - yes? I'm also looking for a trailer as I doubt this will be the only time we haul and paint. Any ideas on finding a used one? You did a great job on your boat - I'm hoping mine comes out looking half as good! DK SanSimon

You have to look around in your area as powerboat movers are real common BUT somebody with a split trailer to move a keel boat is a bit more rare

Is this a deep keel boat....?

I built a wooden cradle on an equipment trailer to haul my shoal keel boat home... Then had a crane move it to a custom built trailer for storage/work and spring transport and launch...

All for under a grand... a deep keel boat is a bit more challenging, but still doable...

My boat has been on the hard for 3 years in a marina. Had I ANY idea it was going to be that long I'd have been so much better off having it hauled! It has cost me a ton of money in yard fees, and a ton more in travel costs, an hour each way, trying to work on it. Life interferes too, prostate cancer, spend time with the grandson or work on the boat. Then there are the two speeding tickets I got, driving slow in places with a really slow speed limits. For a 26 footer 1000 bucks each way looks like a real bargain now.

30 years ago I spent about $500 building a trailer and hauling my Hunter 27 home. Rebuilt the entire insides working a couple hours each night after dinner. Painted the decks, built new bow and stern pulpits. Got the bottom done before launching, and spent not a nickel in yard fees during the off season. Really should have done it that way again. But who knew?

That's the way I'm doing mine ...for the same reasons...a couple hours in the back yard here and there and it's getting done...and I ain't paying for it to "sit" when I'm not there...

On the other hand, I have a farm and a large barn to keep it in...not a driveway in a crowded neighborhood..
