Overland Boat Delivery??
Finding a trucker that has a "dead head" comming this way is definetly the least expensive way to go. I work on boats for a living here on lake lanier doing bottom jobs, awl-grip, etc and there are several different outfits that seem to be very professional. Contact Pam at aqualand marina (770) 967-6811, she can give you a list of several people that can handle transporting your boat. dont worry about bein the biggest boat on the lake, I know of several sailboats in the 50 ft range as well as a 130'' houseboat ( why, I dont know?) but there are several big boats up here.
As for blisters you are very right! this lake breeds blisters like you would not believe!! I have seen boats more than one boat move from the salt water to this lake with no blisters and in two years time be covered up with them. the good thing is that I use trinidad sr botttom paint and can get 3+ years good service with it. As for why fresh water creates more blisters? I cant give you a scientific explianation, but most believe it is because fresh water molecules are smaller(thinner water) therfore can penetrate the pores in gelcoat much faster.
Let me know if you need any assistance on this end
