I think to ship it would be really expensive. Put a 43ft boat on Dockwise from Ft Lauderdale a few years ago and that was $52,000. Now, that would be more. I think I can do it for a lot less. There is some misery involved at times but that's life. The boat does have stabilizers but they might not work too well at slow speeds. I'm guessing to put this boat on a ship would be $80,000 at least.
Thanks for all the advise here, by the way. I am no powerboat man, I love sail, but I did do 7 seasons in the Southern Ocean on fishboats from 50ft to 105ft. I do know what the ocean can serve up and have feared for my life on several occasions.Don't know why I'm contemplating this.
