Be careful with Uship. I got cheap prices but then the truck never showed up on time. Check the number of cancellations by the shipper. It doesn't give him a bad rating but means that somebody isn't following through. Sometimes it's the boat owner but I think some of the truckers take two or three extra jobs in case of owner cancellation and then you may be left out in the cold if you are on a schedule and they have overbooked.

CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
Sailhog, What about the option of taking your boat up Broad Ceek and storing it on the hard at one of the yards like Palmetto Bay? The rate would be far less than an in the water slip and then, after hurricane season, you could take the pleasant voyage down the coast and up to your new home. Plan it as a vacation cruise instead of a task! 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

CaptainForce,
I like the way you think.... My slip fees are very reasonable, so I'll probably leave her in the water. But you are absolutely right about viewing this as a great opportunity rather than a task. I spoke with Bubb (Mike) yesterday and he gave me the low-down on what I definitely needed to take care of before heading south. I must say that contemplating this as something that I need to do has been a bit of an eye-opener.

Sounds like you've been through here! Next time give me a shout....
Thanks for the post.

We went though the same thought process when we bought a boat in NJ. I took two weeks of work and ended up bringing it back myself vs paying 2K to ship it. It really was a great trip.

Its a boat and its designed for this kind of stuff... Do the trip!
