I have years of stories to tell, can't believe I just found this group.

I've been the lucky owner of a 1997 1900xr. Up until recently I've had some bad luck. my escort trailer was stolen and I've had to keep it in the water paying 220 a month for the boat slip. To make it worst, I was driving out one night, and the motor finally just stopped. like it's locked or something. I can't pull it out of the water to take in and have the motor checked, meanwhile, I've now lost my Job to good ol' Corona Virus. so it seems I'm finally going to loose my precious side kick. She's been a good girl for so may years, and has given so many great memories. I know if I could find the trailer for the boat, I'd have a chance, but can't find, rent, borrow, buy one from anywhere close. I'm in Northern California, so if someone would like to reach out and help, I would be in your debt. Meanwhile, missing being out in the water, so if your close to me, take me out on your boat, Missing the water like a fish.
Cheers! MMCocktals.

Welcome aboard!

Sorry to hear about all that has gone wrong. I hope you have at least remained healthy.

I've hired a boat hauling service to haul the boat and transport it. You can either have it hauled with a travel lift or crane (most marinas have one or the other) and dropped onto the boat hauler, or some will haul you at a ramp if you're small enough.

Then haul to your storage location. A Hydraulic trailer will allow you to get dropped on cribbing and you can use jack stands instead of a trailer.

You're other option is to get hauled with a travel lift and blocked in the yard, but you're going to pay storage fees for that as well.
