Boat haulers to recommend?

Need to transport new sailboat from SF to Houston. Any recommendations on good haulers or warnings about unscrupulous ones?

Thanks in advance!

We are moving a boat from Fl. to Houston and have been given the name of
Florida Boat Haulers. Has anyone used them or have any other suggestions.

Thanks,
Jane

Check www.pettegrowboats.com and call Alice Pettegrow. If she hasn''t got something going in those areas at the moment, she''ll know exactly who you can call. I recommend them wholeheartedly.

Charles—

You'd really be better off starting your own thread... since this was a dead one, until you revived it. Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet.

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 used uship.com to get the best price. You can also look at comments from past customers.

Joule

I highly recommend Joule Yacht Transport, Inc. of Clearwater, FL. They did an excellent job of transporting my Jeanneau 36 from Maryland to San Diego upon my retirement from the USCG. $9564 total shipping. Competitive price, very professional, kept me informed of the cross-country progress, boat arrived in perfect shape. Would use them again in a heartbeat, and I'm a fairly picky guy.

Additional costs:
MD yard - Unstep mast, prep for shipment, load (about $900)
CA yard - Unload, touch-up bottom paint, wax topsides ($1050
CA rigger - step mast, tune rig (about $950)

I recommend Global Yacht Hauling of Grand Rapids, MI. They haul nationally with 7 trucks. The owner has had the business for twenty-some years. He just shipped mine from Michigan to NYC and did the work himself. About the nicest people I've ever worked with.
