hauling her home instead of storing at the yard

I was wondering if it was practical to have my 36'x12' sailboat hauled
to my home instead of leaving her at the yard. Draft is 4'6". Anyone have an idea what it would cost to have a sailboat this size trucked about 40
miles?

The money saved for winter storage would help offset the cost some.

What does winter yard storage cost?

I can't imagine it would be cheaper to have it hauled to your house, even if it's 40 miles, plus you need to construct a cradle right..?

Re: hauling her home instead of storing at the yard

No way to really know, unless you call around. Prices will vary on geography, local permits, etc. Don't skimp on stands and be sure to check on local ordinances. Neighbors often don't like looking at boats all winter, so be sure there are no local ordinances against storing it at home.

Re: hauling her home instead of storing at the yard

you have to pull the mast$500 and probably buy stands.

For my 36' ketch it was gonna be a little over $2k And that's IF I could even unload the thing.

Re: hauling her home instead of storing at the yard

Might be orders of magnitude more difficult ($) for you, but, I regret not trucking my boat home. I would have gotten a lot more work done on the boat if I didn't have to drive to do it. My very rough estimate for my 27' boat was that it would have cost at least twice the winter storage to get it home, and I would still have had to pay for launch and recovery.

Try Brownell Systems in MA. You have the mast un-stepped. They will load your boat at a deep water ramp (they have a list and will know the one closest to you). The trailer will unload the boat at your place and they set up the stands for you. In the spring it's the reverse.

Re: hauling her home instead of storing at the yard

I was glad to hear that a friend decided not to bring his boat home. I had no doubt, he would have torn her down to the keel with an overly ambitious plan that would have kept it out of the water for years.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. I don't expect it to be cheaper than yard storage, but I would be able to get an amazing amount of work done on her.

I can easily estimate all the costs except for the trucking. I was hoping someone here had a rough idea.

Ass U Ming you don't have a crane, you will need a specialized trailer to unload. Call Brownell Systems. Home storage is their specialty.

Their price generally is round trip (includes spring launch)
