Can anyone provide an approximate cost per mile and any flat charges being applied for shipping a 28 on the East Coast? And if you have any recommendations on what shipping companies I could contact it would be appreciated.

Cove Point Shippers at Shipwright Harbor are well thought of locally. I'm going to be using them for a short haul in April, for our 27. They have their own Travel-lift at Bristol Boatworks on Rockhold Creek.

Friends of ours recently had a 17,000 lb 31 foot sailboat trucked from Bay City, MI to Phoenix, AZ, a distance of about 2,000 miles at a cost of $8,000. It's an outfit based out of North Carolina. They had good luck with them after using a broker to line up a competitive deal. Don't recall the name of the company offhand but I can ask next time I see them.

$1,500 from Annapolis to Groton is just under $4 per mile, pretty comparable in per mile to what our friends paid.
