Also for me I could ride a bigger boat to my destination instead of towing from the MS we can go behind Chandelur island and into baptiste collette bayou and you are in Venice, LA. Or ride the inter coastal to Orange beach or Pensacola.
Thanks for the info on the Calcutta. We'll look into that. Regarding the trailering versus chartering. The boat will stay in Tampa most of the year and get used there regularly. It'll go to the Keys a few times for long weekends or a week here or there with free lodging and dockage. Same with South LA. So once you consider all of that chartering is the more expensive option.
