I looked into those wheel dollies and the skates. The strongest dollies I could find were 1500-2000 lbs capapcity...not enough even with 6. The skates would work but were $400-500 bucks for decent set. This would work, but you'll need 4-5 guys to push the thing around.

I am currently in Woodbridge, but moving further south hopefully sooner than later.
Hopefully we can hook up sometime. I do remember a couple in my neighborhood looking at lots a few years ago when we were outside raking leaves and we talked a couple of times and the subject of boats came up. If that was you, then this really is a small world. I got my boat running this spring, it had been down about 3 years, not restored though, but in my barn.

we use a floor jack and a 4x4 4wheeler to put ours in the corner. sometimes we have to push the tongue area over to get it straight.

Why cant you just rent a forklift with a ball in one of the blades? You can also weld up a clamp with a ball on it if they dont have one with a hole in it. Forks are about 150 or so a day.

Thanks everyone. I wish I had more options, but I really just need a tiny-tug. We shall see. I will do some measuring in the next few days.

88F, yes that was me that stopped by (with my EX fiance'). We did buy land out there, and sold it when I cut loose of the wacko. We'll catch up. Make sure you plan to make the Winter Chill-Out Party in Richmond on January 28th. More details will be up on OSO.
