Replying to:Transporting an RL 28
Hi all, I'm in the process of buying an RL 28 on the NSW north coast. The price is right but the location isn't, I'll need to transport it to the Whitsunday area. As I see it I've got four options, Buy a trailer (though the boat will mostly live in the water) Rent a trailer Have the boat transported Sail the boat up Does anyone have any idea how much it costs to have a trailer built for an RL28 and/or can recommend a trailer company to talk to? I understand that they were originally provided on modified stock power boat trailers - is this still an option? Is it possible to rent trailers that could be used to tow an RL28 (my vehicle will tow 3 tonnes, maybe a bit more) and if so what would it cost? Transport a 28 by professional road transport? I suspect it would be a big slug of what it would cost me to buy a trailer. The other option is to sail it up the coast. Does anyone have any experience of the 28 on long coastal passages, is the boat solid and seaworthy enough for this option? What passage times could I expect? Cheers
