trucking a boat?

In April I have to move my T30 from the Municipal marina in New Rochelle, NY to Morgan Marina in Sayerville, NJ. Originally I was hoping to motor her down the east river with a friend in a motor boat for assistance if needed, but unfortunately my engine has seized and is currently being removed for a rebuild. This boat is very damaged, loose starboard bulk head and chainplate, hull breech above the waterline in the same location, and now no engine. With this in mind I'm wondering if trucking it the short distance would be safer. When I was considering a boat in Southern Maryland, I was quoted $800 to lift and haul her to Sayerville. New Rochelle is substantially closer so I image the price would be also. Could anyone recommend a hauler in the area? LOA 29.9 Beam 10' Draft 4' 11"

Hi Dave:
I don't know anyone in your area, but when I moved my 30 footer last year it cost me a fixed load/unload fee (around $150 as I recall) plus about $5 per loaded mile.
