DonScribner Your boat displaces about 7000 lbs. For what it's worth, an F250 or 350 could make the trip if you knew somebody that was willing and could rent/borrow a trailer.

WanderingStar I've moved a boat twice. I found that going through a broker or agent very frustrating, the mover they contracted frankly sucked. The other time I used a mover recommended by a local yard, he was a one man operation with a truck and trailer. He was great. You might try finding a yard first and working through them.

jimgo Mt. Pocono, PA? Where did you find a 28' sailboat near Mt. Pocono? I'm down near Lansdale. No good transport suggestions - everyone I spoke with about moving a 25' Irwin from Long Island to Ocean City, NJ was $1800+. Try uShip - The Online Shipping Marketplace - Ship Freight, Furniture, Cars or Moves to get a ballpark estimate, and to find names of folks who will do the move for you.

WanderingStar I don't. But welcome and good luck. Be careful as you proceed, cruising and sailing are a learning experience.

Hi Everyone

Hi, I just purchased a 28ft Newport, my first boat - I had been wanting a sailboat to live on for 15 years! I am fixing her up this winter (she is on stands on the side of my house).
I will be taking her to the ocean in the spring to start heading south, does anyone here know of a good and reasonable transporter to take my boat from Mt. Pocono to the nearest ocean access with a marina that can step my mast?
