Exactly, I have already spent a few days asking for quotes of cranes, riggers and movers. We also have to make sure we can cross the straight of Georgia in a boat that's been sitting on a lake for years just to entertain guests. Safety is at stake.

I am not new to sailing, used to race J24's so I am not making it all the way to the island just to take a spin around a pond.

Anyway, we'll see what the boat has to offer and take it as it comes.

Yes, is getting easier to walk away.

If you're paying $1500 to drop the mast on a 30ft sailboat...you're getting over charged by about $1200. Dropping the mast on a 30ft sailboat should be in the $2-300 range! Even my 41ft ketch has not cost me more than $500 for BOTH masts including someone to go up and deal with the triatic stay!

This sounds about right. I am still searching for some freelance yard workers or riggers that could do it. So far the crane people seems to be the only solution, similar cost.

Agreed.

He should not be afraid to walk away from the deal...there are plenty of boats out there.

Thanks SchockT. I will have a look at the boat on the slip to see if it's worth the trouble but yes, I am getting very pragmatic about it. Thanks to the forum and the research I am gaining a lot of knowledge every time I see one. Mostly what not to buy ))

as stated it can cost this much to de-rig and set the rig and boat on the truck all packed for shipment with no owner help. this would include un wiring the mast, winterizing the boat for shipment and power washing the hull before loading. they wrap and pack everything on the boat for transport. would you do you it for $300 didn't think so

Thanks overbored, at this moment I was only looking for a quote just to take down the mast and step it up at the end of the trip. I have a good quote for the transport.

This is on Vancouver Island. Even the most inland lake, Cowichan, is only 20 miles from the Eastern coast. I doubt they will do any serious wrapping or packing to ready it for transport.
