So... despite living in Albany, NY - I bought a boat in Miami, FL.

NOW - I have to figure out how to get the boat from Miami to Albany. Of course, you cant tow anything with a rental car. You cant tow anything with a moving van except for their own trailers. What can I do?

Me? Instead of hiring someone to transport this thing for me, I buy a truck in Miami too - site unseen [1990 4x4 for $1,500 - claims to be in good shape, running, with tow package]. Now, I'm flying down to Miami, buying a truck on Friday, picking up my boat on Saturday, and driving back up in my new truck with my new boat in tow on Sunday and Monday.

Am I insane?? Or can anyone think of a better way?

I hope the truck and the boat trailer don't have temporary Florida plates, you'll get pulled over at least 12 times on your way back to Albany (6 of them in NY)

later......

It's a boat, for Goodness' Sake!


Take a month off and sail into NY Harbor! :cool If you don't mind spending a few years behind bars you could make some extra cash doing it that way :mischief

You asked if you were insane.
YES


So, when will you realize it? When you see the undrivable truck or after the six tickets or when you are stuck in Florida?

LOL I'm teasing you.

Good luck. Sounds kinda spontaneous and well, hell, you only live once. If it doesn't turn out like you planned. Have a drink, chill out and well, stay and go to Opening Day Game and chalk it up to better luck next time.
