Moving a sailboat from Lake Norman NC.

New to sailing

26 ft Catalina Capri. Thinking of naming it "Eileen" due to the listing to port "design feature".

Can someone throw out a ballpark guesstimation as to what the trucking fees might be to get her down to St Aug Fl?

The move prep, lifting, and setting on the trailer are already covered...I'm just looking at what the hauler need$ might be.

Thanks in advance.

Bryan

If it is the Catalina Capri 26 model I think it is, the hauler will need a wide load permit in most states, as the beam is 9' 5" or so. Your best bet is to call a few companies and get estimates.

If she were narrower than 8' 6", she could be towed without a wide load permit and the accompanying guide escort vehicles...which would cost a lot less.

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.

thanks for the reply sailing dog.

the beam is 9'10" I believe.

the estimates are coming in slowly...I have 2 companies bidding so far.

I was hoping someone might have experienced a move lately and could recall how far the wallet had to open.

Have you considered towing it yourself? Either renting or borrowing a tow vehicle? Or just getting it over to the Coast and taking it down from there? I doubt Dad will get you out of this . (good song btw)

I moved my 28' tri recently, but it is only 8' 6" wide and I did it myself, using its trailer. At 9' 10", it will require a commercial company with escort vehicles and wideload placards.

The boat is a gift...

I guess one could say....

"I'm an innocent bystander.
But somehow I got stuck.
With a boat in Lake Norman.
..and I don't have a truck."

You might want to check and see just how much the permits for
a load UNDER 10' wide cost.

I say this because I almost purchased a Gramp 28 w/a beam of 9-6.

To tow from Indianapolis to Michigan City, - both in Indiana, the permit
was going to cost $10.00 each way. I would have to hang "wide load"
signs - BUT NO escort was required fot loads under 10' wide (lane width
is 12 feet - stay in your lane, they told me)

Of course YMMV - good luck!

BTW, the legal requirements for a wide load—whether you need a placard, need an escort vehicle, etc., vary from state to state. A good resource for you might be getting a current Trucker's atlas, which you can get at most truck stops. They're heavy duty, laminated national atlases, which have a nice summary of how the laws differ in the different states.
