I would be starting in Saratoga and can't take I-95 because of all the briges initially. What route are you taking, and when are you leavin? Bumming six seats just seems easier. I'm over-width for the bridges.

I would think that what a rental would cost including hauling , prep, fuel, insurance, cleanup and haul back would be in the stratosphere. Also who pays when it breaks ? Better just to jump on with some of us and save yourself a lot of hassle.
Other than new I haven't seen anything there I would pay to rent the last couple of trips down

Well I spoke to the guy where the boat is being stored, and getting it out early won't be a problem. Its starting to look like I'm going to have to make the tow.
