Brian, congrats on the new boat.

Has the boat been fully surveyed? As others have mentioned I'd be looking very closely at the fuel system. Its very easy to run into trouble quickly. Is everything working as it should?

I would have it trucked to my home port. Save yourself the headaches and the unknowns. Btw, a captain for a big trip like that will cost way more than having it shipped! Plus fuel costs....

Once you get to your homeport then you can use the boat all you want. If you have an emergency that arises then at least you're close to home.

Good luck!
