yeah, I considered that. By my research, 400 miles from Pensacola to Clearwater Beach, with another few hundred still to go. A little longer than I have time for.

better off trucking ..thats a lot of big water & a long way to O.B. to start the trip.
Bought mine there and couldn't truck it. Had to drive it.
Like a Moby Dick saga. ... lot of the dually type auto transports are happy to do it if its with trailer.

I used Smitty's Hauling (on here) for a similar haul for a similar sized boat.

If you want to do it through the water I have a couple of guys that I know who will do it. It's a pretty easy trip. It'll most likely be cheaper on a trailer.
