I had a sailboat shipped last year. Weight was not the issue. Height was the problem. First carrier used a "low boy" trailer and could not get my boat under the bridges. They even removed the bow spirit. They ended up bringing it back to the yard. I ended up hiring another carrier with a drop trailer. Even with that it still was a matter of inches on some bridges.
