Ferries are closed. That was one of our 1st plans. The guy that ownes it now said he's never gotten permits to haul it. We are just trying to be legal. Shocking, I know.

It's like me buying my motorhome and then bitching about the $600 per year license plate. You have to pay to play.
Seriously, you're a fucking arrogant fucktard.
This isn't a 'big deal' as you put it. I don't think there has been a single mention of it being to expensive to bring it home. Why pay somebody 4000 dollars to haul the damn thing, when we have a truck that is more than capable, it comes with the trailer to do it. My biggest problem, is I am not educated on the wide load permitting side of it.
As I'm working/self teaching my way though it, I'm figuring it out. The whole point of the thread was seeing if anybody had done it before, and looking for pointers. Not asking opinions on how it should be retrieved. That's already been decided.
More accurately, it like you buying a motor home, and then bitching about having to hire somebody to drive you old ass around in it.
