Modifying a Truck to Transport an Alberg 30


I read the message of Scott Lynds. I think i have an interesting answer for him.

There is an Alberg 30 for sale with a truck on which the boat is put on. This truck has been bought used and converted specifically for transportation of the boat. This has been used during 4 or five years to bring an Alberg 30 from Quebec city (Canada) to Florida and back.

The boat has a new Yanmar 27 that has been used for about 50 hours, Now, this boat is on the truck since 3 or 4 years, unused.


In reply to:

What is the general concencus on the best vehicle a person could reasonably tow a 30 for a long distance. What is the average owner using? Is a 3/4 Ton 4x4 up to the task to haul one.....say 1000 miles. I would appreciate any input as I have decided an Alberg 30 is the boat I would ultimately like to own for offshore sailing here in Nova Scotia, and it looks like I may have to venture far afield to find one. Hence, I am in need of a suitable trailer, and my next vehicle (if pratical) should be one to make the journey. I just recently hauled a Catalina 22 back from Lower N.J with my Dodge Caravan and it made the trip without any problem (the van that is, the trailer is another story!!).

Shackleton's near-fatal journey to the Antarctic has received a lot of press in recent years. This is Shackleton's own account—quiet, understated, and riveting. It also describes the travails of the Aurora expedition, intended to lay the groundwork for Shackleton on the other side of the continent.
