Hi Team,

 

I'm looking to move a Weta Trimaran from Wellington to Picton, it's only on a beach trailer.  Does anyone know the easiest way to do this?  I had a quote from a freight company that scared me greatly!!  

 

Thanks

 

Tim

Pick a nice day and go for a sail? ;-)

I vaguely recall Gavin Brady sailed his P class across cook straight?

Hm. Without access to a road trailer? Probably not a lot of good, cheap options.

Mate was really thinking about that.  Was just imagining getting the tide wrong in Tory channel, might be fun without an engine!!

Ask at the Mana Cruising club. A few launches from there could take it on deck....

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

The ferry's will sometimes take a small boat on a launching trailer worth asking

I would think so. But then you've got to get it to and from the ferry, and without a trailer... ?
