I have no insight to who to call but you can get a trucking company and they can put it on the back of a flat bed 18 wheeler. That's how boat sales like Marine Max get the big boys to their site.

I bet its going to be a fun project. It's always fun doing the work yourself. You will feel better in the end. Good looking boat.

I think I would try to find a local house mover. That is unless you have a big budget. Having a crane moved to the site and getting the propper rigging could be expensive.
Also there are still some custom boat builders in that general area. Ask the guys at Composite One, mobile office, who the active custom builders in your area are. The builder's face this problem often.
You are a brave man! Get to fix'n.

Wouldn't any boat hauler with a hydrolic trailer be able to move it?

Looks like a huge cockpit, I like it. Good luck with the project and the move.

ok thanks guys... there has to be someone to move it.... she's 15'9" wide... I rode on my buddys resmondo yrs ago when i first arrived to the gulf... fell in love with her... This one is 6' shorter but what a boat!!!! I will totally remove everything and replace with new... These boats are tanks...also will be a solid wheelhouse above galley... no more dealing with the elements... AC and Satellite TV will be really nice....

I love it. I've met Mr Resmondo and his sons. He was a really neat guy. Those boats are tanks. I've fished on the Sea Reaper a lot and the Annie Girl once. Guess you have to get a green egg for the back when you get finished. Hope you start a build thread, would love to follow. What kind of power and what do you expect cruise speed to be? Jealous what a great boat.

I remember when that boat went down. I had wondered what happened to it. Good luck with the project.,

I used to work on that boat years ago! She rides pretty damn good! Hopefully sh still has a lot of the fishing mojo left on her. I fished her when she was docked at sun harbor marina, which is now Happy Harbor. Where exactly is is going to and from? I live in OB so I might be able to help you with the logistics. .Feel free to pm me

Big project there Pool! Should be a lot of fun. Are you going into the charter business when it's done?

My little brother worked on it back when JT Duddy ran it. I guess the pilot house was removed before transport, or when it sank? How did it sink?

It may be tough timing wise, but you can sometimes line up one of the guys in south Florida with a hydraulic trailer when he is passing by empty on Interstate 10. Lots of them down there and they are always moving boats east to west or west to east via I-10.
