sailingdog Kganev-

You'd be much better off starting your own thread about what you need, rather than reviving a thread that is TWO YEARS dead... Thor hasn't been on this forum, or at least posted on this forum, since that post, which was his last. Please read the post I link to in my signature.

Did I read you right????

You are asking about shipping a boat via ship from RI to Florida??????
Come on why would you encure that big cost??? Why the heck don't u sail it there. Or hire a capt/crew. Are sail boats meant to be sailed not shipped or hauled via truck. Hey just my 2 cents worth!
Good luck, Allan

FaithAb,

Have you considered the standard overland? For FL-RI there''s no need for a ship. If you can schedule in advance you should be able to pick up the flip side of a truck bringing some race toy back from FL. I''ve used http://www.brownellsystems.com/ in MA twice and they sure have boat shipping down to a science.

Faith, there are several shipping companies which offer well-dock service; Dockwise is the largest and transports boats all over the world using a relatively large fleet of well-dock ships. http://www.dockwise.com/

This can be costly tho'' costs can be less if you catch the ship on its ''deadhead'' run e.g. when the ship is leaving a U.S. port for the Med in the Fall, when there''s more demand for vessels to be heading for the Caribbean *from* the Med than vice versa.

Aside from well-dock service, there are many companies which are willing to sling you aboard as deck cargo. This requires a cradle for your vessel to sit in, and the safety of your boat is dependent on the weather conditions experienced by the ship, soundness of the tie-down, degree of theft present on the boat, etc. It''s all these variables - and the effort it takes to track down a ship willing to provide this service - that makes the well-dock companies so inviting.

Thank you, I discovered that the above yacht service only goes from the US abroad but from US port to US port. They said they were the only float in and float out system and that there were some lift in/ lift off systems but that they could not give me the names of those. Faith

Sail Magazine did an article on this during the last year or so. Check the library.
