    The Southeast US coast is a pretty big area, can you pin it down a little? A bunch of 2" conduit and some rednecks in their big block Chevy 4x4?

    LOL. The pickup truck plan will probably be the end solution. I am still looking though, for a good, accessable, level, hardspot. So I thought maybe I should cast about for alternate options, just in case.

    There are plenty of good beaches, and we have about an 8ft tide. (Georgia coast) another downside is the time frame and the wetness for a good bottom paint job, so I prefer to get her high and dry. In the night I twist my brain up with ideas of inflatable chock/blocks and other contraptions. But in the morning my other brain takes over and says: Just haul the damn thing and get it over with!

    A trip to Thunderbolt marina would probably nick me for 7 or 8 hundred bucks before all is said and done. So, nix that. I just wonder what else is out there.

    I've noodled that through as well for my 20 foot beam.

    I'll likely have it hauled.
