Suggestions for interstate boat hauling in NE

I need to have a 36 foot sailboat hauled from Portsmouth, NH to Groton, CT. The boat hauler must be licensed in CT. Any suggestions? Looking for the lowest price.

Thanks!

Why would you want to haul your boat through Nebraska (NE)? We Huskers enjoy boating, but it's a long way from New England (don't know what abbreviation the post office uses for that??)

He wanted ideas for hauling his boat in NE - NE is Nebraska, not New England!

...overlooks a lot of more important considerations, but to each their own .

These guys are great, can't say if they are lowest cost, just the best. Get them before they start the Fall haulouts, ask for Doc:

Husker—

Actually, NE is NorthEast...and was long before Nebraska came along...

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.

I am not trying to out do Husker Du in denseness but cant the boat be taken via the water route?
Are there major problems that preclude this option? Things like a bad engine, dis-masting or already on the hard with spars down, new boat needs refit?
Mostly curious but also looking for any adventures I can find locally in NE to LI Sound (and I don't mean Nebraska). I am not a licensed CG captain of any gross tonnage but I do own a few boats and know some of the waters that need to be transited. I am a want-to-be surveyor and am not looking to make money off of whatever your predicament is.
Check my profile and posts for some of my experience if you are interested.
