Default best way to get a boat from Pennsylvania to Missouri?

I might buy a boat in Penn and I live in SW missouri. Just don't have the time to pick the boat up myself. Of course I'll have the boat surveyed first. Does anybody know the best way of getting the boat moved. Just pay someone to pull it? a shipping company? a car mover maybe? any ideas on cost, I'm going to call a few places, but suggestions would be appreciated thanks... It's about 1000 miles one way...

contact Big Chubby here on the boards, Jeff. I have met him in person and have 100% confidence in him and what he does. The Basturd is a bit expensive, but you gotta ask yourself "do I want to take a chance here". If the answer is yes, call the cheep guy, if the answer is no, you call Jeff.

And no, I do not get a DIME from this referal, but I will hit him up for a beer somewhere when we cross paths again, so make sure he knows Dean said call.

Dean, I'll splurge and buy you a whole six pack, thanks, Groundstrike, call me at 909-********* or email me at *********** I charged 2.00 for the last year but with the cost of fuel going crazy, I am at 2.25 per mile one way with no hidden costs.

I talked to Jeff last year about hauling my TG for me. I ended up picking it up myself but the next time I need one hauled it will be w/him. Very prompt to return calls and have only heard good reports.

Jeff, next time your in Richmond I like BudLight
