I agree with the comments posted so far and would like to add another. We trucked our PSC 40 from southern California to Seattle, and learned a lot from the trucker who carried the load. He made changes to the way the boat had been prepped (by professionals) for transport, and his attention to detail was impressive. It took him a full day to get the load ready for transport after the travelift had put it on the truck. In addition, the trucking company already had the proper cradles (they did a lot of carrying for PSC when they were in southern California)--we would have had to rent them otherwise, which would have added to the cost. The result was no damage to the boat from the trucking process and a big load off our minds (grin).

The 34 is somewhat smaller, but still big enough that we'd definitely have it professionally trucked if it were our boat.
