Re: Boat Delivery Boston to Florida

Hogfish is a modified sharpie, designed to handle to open ocean. It's been as far north as Maine and as far south as the Virgins. It's a rather forgiving craft, hard to capsize. Doesn't have the disadvantage of keelboats, which trip over their keels in big waves. It can definitely do the trip provided the crew is reasonably qualified. I averaged well over 120nm a day on the ocean. On the intracoastal the going is slow, especially late in the season when days are short; 5kt for 10 hours a day is typical, so, yes 50nm/day is pretty good.

Hello, My name is Brian Koch and I am interested in the delivery of your boat. I am former active duty USCG as well as Federally certified instructor of USCG Master 100 and 200 tons, GMDSS Radar STCW and a number of other courses. I stopped keeping count on my trips in 2005 and at that point had done 155 trips north or south, as far north as Newfoundland and as far south as Venezuela. Please feel free to contact me

Delivery for competent crew of 2 will cost about 400 to 600 per day plus travel costs. If the boat is ready to sail.

Boston to Lauderdale... 1300+ miles
Lauderdale to Panama... 1300+ miles

In a small boat you would be lucky to average 50 miles per day on the ICW and Fl to Panama is hard work in a big boat and not to be attempted in hurricane season.

That is a month for each leg and hurricane season is approaching.
Where will the boat be berthed in Lauderdale and Panama?

In Fl you would be better going to Miami...

We have done both trips, on the boat in our avatar, as a two person professional team and it is hard work on a big keel boat. The Panama leg would be dangerous in a Sharpie even if you knew what you were doing!

Truck it or sell it.

Re: Boat Delivery Boston to Florida

going the wrong way as regards gulf stream so would need to go coastal. may be hard on boat and slow ( expensive). would look into trucking as safer ( seasonal storms), easier and probably cheaper option. Would be excellent way to learn your boat. ?maybe hire a captain fo the first week or two for teaching purposes and then do the rest yourself. Best of both worlds Would try to get where you're going before hurricane season .
