With an 8' beam and a displacement of 4500 pounds plus trailer and stuff onboard, looks like you could pull it with a full size pickup truck. Get a galvanized trailer with brakes on both axels so you can take the boat home and save docking and storage fees. California is going to be expensive compared to OK. There are several sailboat trailers in the $1500 to $3200 range on ebay. Start with automotive, then trailers, and then boat trailers. The Panama Canal is going to cost you about what a trailer is going to. You should also be aware that Baja California will have you beating agains the wind and current.
