Thanks for the input everyone...

Does 2,700 seem like a fair price for this move?

I make the distance to be about 450 miles, $2700.00
Hmmmmm $6.00/mile.

Not bad for a days work.
(don't anybody flame me - I'm retired from the trade,
and I know where the rocks are)

What other quotes have you gotten?

Although
- the boat is a gift - so the Total Cost of Ownership
would be $2700 + taxes/title/etc. - If the boat is worth the
money, as she sits, it would probably be do-able.

I hope the $2700 covers liability and collision insurance for the move. Bad things can happen to boats trying to move on dry land.

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.

Yes.

The 2,700 gets me from NC to St A Fl., lic. bonded, insured...it also gets me the boat sitting on a trailer for a few days so I can get some paint on as the boat has never seen saltwater.

I'm still waiting for an estimate from the NC guys.
They would not be able to leave the boat on a trailer for painting purposes...they'd just drop it off at a marina in Fl and split.

hellosailor has a spectacular aura about hellosailor has a spectacular aura about
BWU-
When you ask for those estimates (call back!) you may find that some haulers can give you a discount of 30-40% *IF* you tell them that you can be flexible about the pickup and dropoff dates. Every hauler winds up with holes in their schedule, and if they can use your job to fill a hole...they are often willing to give you a break instead of letting the truck ride empty or idle.

You really want to be there to witness the loading and unloading though, too many things happen and someone you trust very very well needs to be there to sign off on the job at both ends--just in case there's damage.

Also, make sure everything is down, stowed, padded, and secured. Unsecured ports or hatches may literally blow off. Hanging lines will chafe. And you may get road rash on the bow, or at least a good coat of dirt. Folks seem split on that, either apply a heavy coat of wax (and don't buff it off) before it starts, so you can wash & wax remove it all after delivery, or some folks say to apply a heavy coat of soap, and just wash that off on delivery.

Either way, someone who knows what "oops" means should witness the loading an unloading, and get a WRITTEN committment from the company on the exact price, with no chance for "I'll need another $500 right now in cash" loopholes. There are plenty of reputable movers...But no one has found a sure way to keep out the scoundrels.

hellosailor,

thanks for the advice! good stuff!
the owner of the boat will be there when it gets loaded.

the boat will be broken down for shipping by a marina at lake norman...I think they plastic wrap it.

Check with the carrier that you select
- some stow the mast by itself low on their trailer - this lets them throw
straps over the boat to secure it.

Also, make sure to take off the wind instruments, if there are any on the mast. Even though Raymarine says that their wind anenometer can take highway speed winds, why risk it.

Will do.

Check this out. Just got a phone call. The NC guy has a double he setup w/ a pickup in Miami. That cut the shipping by more than half!

It'll be here in 11 days.
