Gary Lorenson may be able to help you out. He hauls for Captains Choice (sunsations and baja's) and just delivered another boat for us (FL to NY). I have used him for about 3 yrs and he has never let me down.
I believe Gary has one from OH to CA.... may work out on a back haul for you.

Tom here you go from the same company if you have a bigger checkbook. the white 379 runs about $225,000 depending on the options.
