Boat hauling

Cheapest way to get a 25'er hauled across country? (TO to Van)
Getting quotes from 98 hun to 25 grand(!).
Boat is only worth 9500 +/- so.......
Was hoping to find hauler who would otherwise be empty coming this way who'd be willing to haul cheap.
That ever happen?

No. Not with professional boat haulers. You may get a cheaper price if it is a back-haul, but, in my (limited) experience, not much. I paid about $5000 to go half way across the country for a 32' er. Really the cheapest way to do this may be to sell the boat, and buy another on the other side.

Re: Boat hauling

How big of a 25 footer? Might be able to rent a 10 ft uhaul and trailer it out yourself. It would suck, but so does spending $10k.

Re: Boat hauling

Yeah starting to think fly out rent u-haul and trailer as boat comes w/cradle will be cheapest but would have to wait until July when I have AV.

Re: Boat hauling

If it has a cradle, maybe look at uship.
Youll need all the boat, height, weight, etc specs.

Re: Boat hauling

Again, what kind of 25'er? In his book "Blue Highways", William Least-Heat-Moon tells about how he got his boat from NYC to Seattle. Might work for you too.

Re: Boat hauling

So 10 foot beam with a fixed fin keel. Not a trailer sailer. Through 5 provinces, across the Rocky mountains and over 4000km distance. Thats going to be pricey. On the other hand, a pretty nice boat and not replaced cheaply.

I think I would try and sell, buy another boat in Van.

Tough call though, depending on your attachment to the boat.
