I am about 10 miles into DE from the bridge, the exit right before the MD line on 95, so if you need help let me know.

I wont be home for another two weeks, so it will have to wait until then if you need help, but if you really need to drop it somewhere on the way, my driveway is available even if Im not there.

if you could borrow a bigger bunk trailer, forklift the other boat + trailer on the bunk trailer and bring it home. lay some 2x12's across the bunks so the badd trailer has a flat surface to sit on. i moved a boat lift like this.

Take a picture, or describe the boat and trailer to the best of your ability, put an ad on Uship.com, and see if any of the bids are reasonable.

It's a 19' boat. Trailer will add a couple feet to that but just the tung. Single engine. I live in Pasadena.
This is a twin to the one I'm trying to buy.

seems small enough to put on a small equipment trailer. Ive moved a few things on a 20' deck that were longer than it. Your trailer can hang over the tongue and fit fine. I moved an old suburban on one! lifted! That would probably sit higher than the boat would.

Good Luck!

A 19' boat on the trailer will fit on most flat bed tow trucks. Have the driver winch it up from the stern first and let the trailer tounge hang over the rear of the flat bed. Height won't be an issue with such a small boat and the trailer wheels will fit between the bed rails. I've done it several times, not a problem really. Sometimes we tend to over think the problem.

That would be a 200 mile flatbed tow. Looking for cheaper options. The guy is a little high on what he wants for the boat anyway so.......

Most all towing of any sort is done by the mile anyway so try to work out a flat rate with someone local near you. Maybe your auto mech has a tow service that will cut you a deal. Trucks aren't making $ sitting still.
