Default Transport from Detroit to ATL????

Anyone used a transport company from Detroit area? I was supposed to pick up my new to me Donzi 26ZX this weekend but loan company dropped the ball so closing is delayed. Now I do not have another free weekend until after the New Year
I am not necessarily in a hurry but I don.t know if I can wait another month either. Thanks for any references

26Scarab does some boat hauling on the side.....and I believe he is insured for that kind of work (bonded?) Tows with a Dodge diesel 3/4 ton. You might look him up.

If not, and the price was right, I'd consider doing it for you too.....between the holidays.....I don't have to work that whole week. Only difference is I don't have a diesel, and I am not bonded..... but my truck would do the job just fine. My boat wieghs more than yours does, and I tow to LOTO from Grand Rapids, MI several times a year with no special effort involved.

Mike

Hey Packin, if he says "hey Mike, will you drag my Donzi down here for me??" you can be my co-pilot. And I have a pretty good stereo too.

This kinda sounds like a fun trip. Boat's not real big, truck is pretty big, and lot's of towing experience in both seats. I'm in if you are!!!

It is in St. Clair shores, MI just north of Detroit. Towing is not a problem as my 99 F350 diesel w/ Superchips tuner installed has all the power I need, Now it is finding the weekend to do it. The boat can stay where it is now no problem but I want my new toy here!!!!!!! Thanks again. I just do not have the time to drive to Detroit and back on any weekends this month. I was supposed to meet the owner halfway but since Essex Credit drug their feet doing a title search I have to make new arrangements. Thanks again and Packinair, I wish I had your time

Hey I live in St Clair Shores !!

I did some towing over the summer for some extra cash, unfortunatley I'm not bonded or insured as a company.
I have a new job and am working overtime so it would be tough on a weekend but it looks like I might have the week off between Christmas and New Years.

I can see it now, If I pick up Packin and Foul we would end up in the Key's water testing the boat for you !!!

PM me , since during the day my computer will not load up the forums with the new format.
Maybe we can work something out
