I moved my Catalina 30 3 times, rig up rig down, rig up rig down. You get the pic. Had the hots for a trailer so I could move it myself. I know there are those who can do this faster but it was close 5-6 hours to get it rigged with crane and one Howard (a guy who knew what and how to do it). My thinking is there was nothing easy about moving a Catalina 30, a boat I really liked. Using suitable landings along the NC coast are rare, none close to my house in Wilmington. You use a lift and crane. By the way 5 people on a 30 footer for a week is going to be crowded before Sunday. Why not just put the 30 on the closest big lake and go sailing. Once the sails are up you won't care so much. Moving that 30 is gonna be work. Elec brakes and weight distributing hitch is not an option, it's the only way.
