Transporting 22 from Florida to Seattle

Wondering if anyone has suggestions/recommendations (or is in same "boat" so to speak and wants to split a transport) on transporting from Florida (Miami area) to Seattle. In a fit of insanity, I just bought a 22 and ultimately will be bringing it up here to Alaska, but for now just want to get it to Seattle for less than I paid for the darn boat! Anyone have experience with the outfit that lets you bid on shipping, kind of like an Ebay for shipping? Cant recall the outfit but that was one thing I was thinking of. Few months till boating time, so have a little while to work this out. Boat is on a trailer, but will probably want to have it on a flatbed for that distance...Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

WD, have you asked the folks at Whaler about adding your hull to one of their shipments?

I recently had a Montauk transported from Jacksonville FL to Los Angeles CA. I used uship.com which is similar to ebay in the sense that you post your shipment and how much you want to spend the receive bids. I specified in my listing that only flat bed transportation would be considered. After doing much reseach on the bidders I finally found one I was comfortable with and agreed on $1,500. I would recommend the shipper I used without hesitation. If interested you might save a few bucks by avoiding the website.

I can get you a contact for American Fast Freight out of Mississippi if interested. They do shipments from the south frequently with most freight ending up in Anchorage. When I shipped my Whaler the most expensive leg was from Texas to Seattle. Good luck, Mel.
