Have a trailer I can rent? In NC, SC

I am purchasing a 26 foot sailboat with fixed keel and need to move it from Charlotte, NC to Charleston, SC. Rather than pay for the expense of a boat mover, is there anyone on this forum that may have one I could rent or borrow for a day? I'd be happy to pay a deposit and a fair rate for it's use. It needs to work with a 26 foot C&C sloop. Please respond it that's you. Thanks.

Hmm not too many full keel trailers about so I can't imagine you will get too many takers. I do remember seeing a number of full keel trailers in a storage yard on statesville rd between exits 25 and 28. Zoom all the way in on this address in google maps and you'll see what I mean. I have no idea if it is an open business but there was at least one trailer that looked like it would work and also a cradle or two that would work on a flat bed. Good luck.

You might want to post a wanted ad in Craigslist.

If you have a cradle or can build one just haul it on a tandem axle car trailer can be rented any where! ......Dale

Charlie,

The problem is that the trailers are pretty much boat specific. And if you find one like yours, it will probably be on a trailer already because of the season or maybe a cradle. When I bought my boat, sans trailer, I had to modify one to fit in two weeks. Fortunately, I had noticed another Lancer 25 on a trailer at a marina about 45 minutes from home. So, I swung by with my camera, tape measure and sketch pad. If this is a limited event, some folks build stout, well braced cradles out of 4x4s. The biggest problem then would be loading and launching. You probably will still need a crane or a sling.
