6. How big of a deal is it to ship a boat from out of the area?* I see quotes around $1500 from socal up to the Bay area, and $5k to ship from the east coast.* Bad idea?

we were looking at a trawler in So Cal and looked into shipping.* Word of caution on those quotes.* That is for the SHIPPING ONLY.* You also have to get the boat out of the water, onto the trailer and prepped for transit.* When it is delivered you then have to reverse the process--get it put back together and put back in the water.* There are height restrictions and things may have to be removed / lowered to comply with the height restrictions and things must be secured.* The prep work can add up fast.* Just be aware!

I can only reiterate what I said before, look at LOTS of boats, online and in person, to get a feel for what you really want.** The invitation is always open for*boat tours at coyote point.*
