Anyone want to tow a boat?

I've been getting uship bids to tow a 24' boston whaler on its own trailer from Washington state to Boston. I'd rather give one of you the money in the off chance someone on here is looking to make a few bucks and has a trip planned. Latest bid was $2400.

That seems really cheap for some reason. What were the higher bids?

Josh - did you already buy the whaler?
If so, congrats, lets see pics.
If not, happy to try to help you source one locally.

What year and model do you have? . I have an 84 Outrage 22. They are tanks.

2400 does seem really cheap going cross country.

Did you trailer it yourself? I trailered mine from North Carolina to Long Island. It was a tense trip.

No I didn't have the time to take off basically so I used uship in the end. I had great luck with them and the shipper was a total professional and texted me the whole way with location, ETA etc. she had a great review and rating so I was pretty comfortable with it. I'd use them again in a heartbeat.
