Tubby dullard

HI! TUBBY DULLARD HERE.
just bought another sailboat! where's the 3 foot stick to hit myself with?
she's a 28' Oday and a fine looking boat she is. she's a 1984 model.
Her name is DRAGON FLY,and she's in Castine harbor at the moment.
there are 3 choices:
1. winterize her in october. $$$
2. Haul her from here(mid-coast Maine) to Green Cove Springs Florida.$$$
3. find someone who will help me sail her down.

Anyone know how i'd find an experienced co-pilot to bring her down?
Perhaps bring her only to the north end of the chesapeake bay, and i'd take
it from there to the ICW, alone.
any help?
thanks

Re: Tubby dullard

Welcome to Sailnut, Tubby Dullard.
That name has a ring to it!

O'Day made a few different flavors of 28 footers. Is this the model you bought? O'DAY 28 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

I'd advocate taking the boat down to Florida in the water but that will cost you $$$$ and time to boot. How are the sails? the engine?

Try to put a price on each of your options and figure out if you have the time for the in water transit.

Congrats on your new boat!

Re: Tubby dullard

The same sailboat yes, she draws about 4' ft.
has a new jib, and main is real good, still stiffness and substance. Engine starts and runs good, hull speed at around 1800 rpm.
new heat exchanger, oil change, stuffing box re done spring, bottom job spring, no issues i can see. she has a dodger, extra jib sail wenches for single handing in cockpit.
hand held GPS and VHF, as well as a vhf in main cabin.
extra sails(older), wheel steering, marine head, holding tank, h/c pressure water, stove, sailed well over to 25* healing in gusts. pretty much turn key condition, just sail her.
I could have the time to sail her to Fla., not the experience sailing that far.
Probably winterize her for around $900 for six months storage, in and out.
shipping is competative in price and no way to know this early for a Oct. haul out. Maybe $1500 to $3000 range. that's how it looks today.
