Default Ohio to NJ: Delivery Capt Needed

Im considering purchasing a boat in the Cleveland, OH area. Does anyone have a recommendation for a delivery captain to run the boat home to NJ for me? Thanks.

What size boat are you looking at? Any idea what the bridge clearance is ? Getting one may not be that easy . If your going the "fast" route through the Welland Canal they have there restrictions , last year the owner of the boat was not allowed on it and some sort of paperwork was needed for Captain and first mate. You may also have a 4 to 24 hour wait to get in. Going the slower route ,to a point , means entering the canal on the Niagara River. Not going to get into that until you post that your buying it. Check the boat out before getting to worried about transporting it. Things have a way of faliing into place.

Thank you for the reply. There will be no issues with clearance through the Welland Canal, which is the planned route. I am aware of the restrictions when the boat crosses into Canada, which is why I need a licensed captain to run the boat for me - I would not even be allowed on the boat at this point. Crazy but true.

Im very serious about this purchase, but Id like to get an idea of the cost to send her back East. If you can recommend a Captain or two, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I can help you as long as you don't need it asap, as I am slammed. I have even done deliveries to Canadian ports during COVID. PM if needed.
