First, all of those guy's claiming to be boat haulers my not actualy be haulers but brokers that book back haul runs (for a commision) for companies that haul new boats. Not saying that is a bad thing, it's good because it saves you money, most of these guys are experienced at hauling boats...you just may think your hiring one guy and you'll get another.
I've used Sammy Orr out of TN, his drivers are very good & reasonable. My guess is between 1 & 2K. Fuel prices could have bumped prices up a bit.
