Re: How Do You Move a Mast Over the Road
Do you have access to a truck with a front bumper mounted pipe rack? You might be able to move the mast without warping it if the overhangs are ten feet or less. The more important thing is to check to see if you need trip permits and flag cars (you will probably need two). I know this because I got a ticket when I moved my mast from the boat yard to the marina (less than two miles) and an Oakland Ca. motorcycle cop happened to spot me.
Did you get a ticket? I'd have to check with some local contractors to see what trucks they have.
The other option I could look into is the canoe clubs here. That have some nice long trailers for the outrigger canoes. I could donate some money to the club in return form moving my mast.
