Back in 1996 I had my 31 trucked from Illinois to Long Island Sound. I arranged with a boat trucking firm that was recommended by the nearest PSC dealer. When the truck arrived it had all kinds of special doodads and rollers to minimize any possible damage to the hull. The driver knew exactly where to set everything as well as doing an outstanding job of placing and securing the spars on the trailer. When the boat arrived at its destination, there wasn't even a scratch from the transport. I think trucking an expensive boat is a specialized job that demands the right specialists.
