From Dallas TX to Orlando

Need to get my 22 foot sail boat from Dallas, Tx to Orlando, Florida towards the end of this month. Do not have trailer.

Catalina 22 Fixed keel.

Tips, bids, ideas, thoughts- help in general would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Rent a flat bed trailer and build a cradle? Rent a trailer from a marina?

Have you talked to any of the moving companies specializing in moving boats? You'd probably be better off buying a trailer, but if you don't want to sell...

Sail/motor down the Trinity River to Galveston (jump a few dams along the way), sail across the Gulf, sail/motor either around or across Florida, and you're there!

Gonna get someone to tow it point to point- trailer, rigging and all- he will even splash to no crane required.

about ~$3000.

That's pricey. If you had a tow vehicle and the time I would buy a trailer and do it yourself. Price will be comparable after the gas and hotel is figured in and then you own the trailer. If you can buy the trailer cheap enough it will be cheaper.

Then again you buy a cheap old trailer that has a bearing that over heats and then burn out the whole wheel/axel assembly and then by the time you buy new components and pay some mechanic "out of state and I'm broke down" fees as well as an extra night or two in a hotel waiting for it to be fixed you might as well have bought a boat in Florida.

Agreed. That sounds like a lot of money to haul a boat that size.
