hia all over there!!

some help needed!! - as i have no idea / clue as to where to start looking - so i thought this was the best place to actually start!!

problem:

a mate is in the process of purchasing a sailing boat from the USA!
the boat is in San Fransisco
he needs to get it to Rotterdam, Holland
he has sorted the altantic crossing to rotterdam..

but now he needs to get the boat from San Fransisco to Fort Lauderdale!!

its a 10 meter x 3.8 meter wide sailing yatcht

so...

does anybody know of any haulage company in San Fransisco that specialises in this sort of thing?? and an idea of cost would be brill

i know its a wierd one for a car forum - but i know the Elise community ALWAYS comes up trumps!!

thanks in advance

Burt

He can get it hauled across the US no problem. It'll probably cost him somewhere between 4-10K depending on the carrier.

I'd actually advise looking at other ports on the east coast, it will probably be a thousand or more dollar less to have it leave off from Wilmington, NC or Charleston, SC or Savannah, GA or Virginia Beach, VA

i can think of no better place to post a "TOTALLY unrelated to Lotus/Car etc!!!" thread than in the Lotus sub-forum.
:rolleyes:

is this ANNOUNCEMENT from Randy at the top of the forum completely invisible to every else?

pay particular attention to the second post.

my monitor display it without any trouble at all.

You put a thread titled "help needed - TOTALLY unrelated to Lotus/Cars etc!!!" in a forum called "General Discussion (Lotus related)"

Are you slow, son? :thwack:

Aw, gee. Give the guy a break. It was worth it to read things like "haulage company", "any idea of cost would be brill" and "comes up trumps". By buying the damn car, we must be at least a bit anglophilic. And his username is one of the better ones I've heard lately.

And then I'm sure Randy or someone will get around to moving the thread and the world will be set to rights.

If the boat is in S.F. in seaworthy condition. Take the time to get the boat by sailing down the coast of California to San Diego. There are many places to stop along the way.

Once in S.D. truck the boat to Galveston/Corpus Christi. Then sail the boat along the gulf states, thru the Keys and backup up the inter-coastal waterway to an east coast shipping point.

Or if open ocean crossing is your desire, then explore the Carribean and across to the Canaries.

With the price of truck fuel, you should minimize the time the boat is going on the highway.

You can probably find someone to sail it for you the entire way and save big $$.

I helped deliver a 42' sailing yacht down the east coast to Ft. Lauderdale last April when I was laid off my job. I don't have the time now, but I bet it would be great to try the CA coastline and the gulf.

I would love to do it, but it's the time issue. I'm sure if you advertised it right you could get many takers.
