I am in Anacortes checking out where I want to move my 1990 Bayliners 3888 from Long Beach CA. Trying to figure out plan, both radar arch and flying bridge cover have to go. Should I just suck it up and drive up or who is the shipper that knows?

Thanks,
Tripp

It all breaks down very well, and when it gets to L.A. will all be reassembled and re-sealed.

The dealership I worked for also sold Azimut Yachts, now they were one that doesn't truck well... ha ha ha In fact Azimut built a special Ocean Freighter that loaded them inside the hull by front and back door, when the well deck was flooded and then closed the doors and pumped out the water, then they rested on special cradles. We had to pick them up from Camden NJ off this freighter and then bring them back to the Great Lakes by water. Even then the bridge was not connected and most of the upper part was in boxes and stored below so we could make the bridges and over passes on the Ohio River.

But all in all if I were you I would ship it by a specialty carrier insured. It's worth the aggravation. Boating is supposed to be fun not work! BTW, ... where is she heading ? Long Beach?

You may get more responses with actual mover recommendations if you post your question in the Motoryacht section. A few regular posters there have had their boats transported.

Most haulers will remove the wheels and rudders. They'll also remove the venturi and flybridge cap and stow that on the bow. All the drawers get removed and stowed on the cabin floor and wrapped. Sounds like you are bringing the boat UP? Better hurry, the best weather is right around the corner and we're in for a great summer this year.

If it was me doing it, I would look into a delivery Capt. Have her driven up the coast on her keel. Or if you have the time and comfort in your skills, do it yourself.

Whom ever you use, make sure they have load insurance and get a copy of it.
I had a friend loose his boat because the hauler only had insurance on the rig not the load.

Hardy,

I had Associated Boat Transport ( Mark) transport my 38 from Olympia to Huntington Harbor. They had the best rate at the time which was about two years ago. I removed the arch, Bimini and steering wheel. Removal of the flybridge was not necessary, nor was removal of the props. Due to various bridges and overpasses shipping to Anacortes increases the cost dramatically therefore I recommend you ship the boat to Olympia then run it from there.
If you have the time and resources I'd consider running the boat up on its own butt, I'd be a great adventure. Some worry about wear and tear accumulation but I see it as one of the reasons we buy boats.

Hello
I have a 4588 and I am located in BC wanting to take my 4588 to San Francisco on its own bottom I here it is a great trip I would
like to talk to all the captains that I can to get the feel for the trip. I plan to start in August I have been told that is the best weather window.
Since I am new with a motor yacht I have lots of question like the fuel burn for a Heno 250 turbo. stops along the way and condition along the way. I was planing to start from Neah Bay and check the weather before II turn left. Is there anybody out there I can talk to??
Thanks Capt B.
