Quick Question

Looking for a general answer in round numbers.

On average what is the cost to transfer a boat from one place to another?

For example: A 29' Sloop from Tampa, FL to San Francisco, CA.

Thanks.

Just shipped one out by truck from Jacksonville FL to LA cost was $9.000 Not including the prep. That was just the truckers fee. For a 40 foot sail boat.

It is very boat specific... a 29' sailboat could be a trailer sailor that weighs 4000 lbs, or a bluewater cruising boat that weighs over 8000 lbs. Unless you can say what specific boat you're trying to move, it is unlikely that you'll get an accurate estimate.

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.
