Well, unless you're a Hooker of course. But that's a whole different topic...

I'd also recommend talking to a local full service marina - they're quite familiar with shipping boats and are well connected. To the recommendation of talking to Polaris and NorthWind - I'd suggest calling some of the east coast manufacturers, Nautica, Novurania, AquaScan, Ribcraft.

on a trailer?

Is your boat on its own trailer? (I read the posts quickly.... that is my excuse if this was mentioned already....). If so, I hired Skipjack Logistics to haul my boat from the e coast to Ak, and it "only" ran me $5000. That is a long-butt way, too. Ribcraft prep'd it (fairly well. don't get me started) and it arrived w/out holes in the tubes, etc. Check them out??? Good luck. It is always a gamble. Make sure your carrier has insurance!

When Polaris delivered my RIB (from Canada to Northern California) it was Guy doing the trailering. I know he has personally delivered boats to Sacramento, and San Diego, as well.

The only commercial delivery that I heard of him hiring was putting a 40'-ish RIB on a train bound for Newfoundland(?)

He built a couple of largish RIBs for a whale watching outfit in Hawaii; I never asked how he got them there.

But, I suppose you could still ask.

Mine got shipped from Maine to Florida for $800. Marina to Marina. On a 18wheeler. Its a 23ft center console RIB. Deflated sides, and huge forklift loaded it, and I paid extra $50 at local marina to unload it. Place that shipped it is called Journey's End Marina, and they are in Maine. Call them up, if they can't do it - they will send you to someone who can. Took 3 days.

Forgot to mention, boat was on its own trailer all the time.
