There was a gentleman named Doug who was recommended here. Hauls for Chittum I think it was said. I had his number but can't find it and searching the threads came up empty.

If anyone has his number or another referral it would be much appreciated.

TIA

I've used Doug Smith for 3 hauls and highly recommend him. He seems to care about the skiffs and does a great job.
Best,

I would call him and get a quote. It depends on his other trips and timing. I paid between 1000-1200, plus a tip, depending on one way vs round trip, etc.

You can get multiple bids on USHIP, but you have to read the reviews, be sure they are insured etc. Also, buying a skiff used from FL was a bit of a pain as they don’t title the engine or something and you have to do all your homework as to paperwork and have a cooperative seller. I think TX required a bill of laden. I called TPW to get every thing in order first. Doable but I know one guy who had wait over a month to get his HB properly titled from FL purchase.
Best,
Matt
