I may need a trailer to transport a 30 ft de from the Carolina's to south Florida. If I could borrow one great or if anyone knows one for sale at an economical price. It will be a temp trailer for the long haul. Then I'll get a custom trailer made.

Any leads or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

I would love to ride it down. I have a measly 6 years of LOCAL boating knowledge though. Boating in unfamiliar waters and possibly break down is a scary thought.

Then again, it's diesel, reliable.

Ether way, when it geta home, I'll be trailering it.

I'd get the wide permits for Georgia, and carolinas to keep the cops happy.

Hire a transport company or hire a captain and you come along and learn a few things along the way. I wouldn't invest in a used trailer for a long haul, most used trailers are junk.

No dock space. How long would it take to ride her down from the Carolina's?

Boat is estimated at 5-7k pounds. So shouldn't be a problem with my duramax.

That's a lightweight, my 28 was just shy of 8

You say it's lightweight? The boat would be used to fish inshore and offshore, cruise, and pull a tube (lol) at a slow 12 knot clip. Being lightweight, will it not be as smooth in the rough?

My main reason for switching to a Downeast hull is to handle the rough, stability during bottom fishing and at drift. I boat in south Florida. Loved the looks of DE boats. My other choices are the Carolina Classic 25 or 35 contender side console.

Am I masking the right decision?
