For 3K I would truck it for certain. I too thought about a boat in Portland, maybe the same one, but in the end opted for one nearer to home in Bellingham, a less than 4 hour cruise. Lots of not fun things can happen in the open ocean on a strange boat, and its strange to the hired skipper too. You would want to spend some money on it first in Portland making it ready and really going over it.
Things like tank condition, fuel age, all filters etc. Truck it home. I learned on my boat that "turn key" is boat broker hype baloney.
