Need my Boat Moved!

I need someone to move my boat, Sea Vixen, from Puerto Vallarta Mexico to Merritt Island Florida, ASAP.

I'm on the job. In fact, I'm underway on your boat right now. We're motoring out of the marina... Merritt Island, here we come!

KC- This is a good example of a lousy first post...

It would help if you said what kind of boat Sea Vixen was...since moving her overland would be fairly simple if she's a trailerable boat, and a bit more difficult if she's a 40' catamaran.

It would help if you said what, if any, deadlines you have for getting the boat moved and what your budget for getting the boat moved was. Does ASAP mean this month, tomorrow, yesterday, sometime before the end of the year???

Also, would you be available to crew, if the delivery is being done by sea?? Are you covering the expenses of flying a captain and crew to your boat and back home from Florida?

If you haven't read the POST in my signature, I would highly recommend you do so...

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.

maybe I should expand on earlier post. $600 a day in addition to expenses ie. airline tickets. Half down, balance when we get to Florida. Pm me so you can make arrangements for you to send the certified check.

WTF are you talking about? The guy has 48 posts from a ways back. it isn't his "first post". I suggest YOU do some reading before you shoot from the lip.
Who appointed you sailnet police?

I believe the boat is a Rawson 30. He made a thread back in Aug 08 looking for a crew. Got lots of interest.

Bubb,
when you get the check, just deposit it, send me the overage, and our agent will call you to make the schedule.

If I thought this guy was serious, I'd offer.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

Paul. I let you know when I see the check. I am willing to cut him a deal as I have another boat waiting for me in Fort Lauderdale heading to New York, I was thinking about jumping off one boat and on to another. It would save him the return airfare.
