starboardyacht is on a distinguished road
good points Arch... however, never think any shipper will take as much care of your boat as you will.... save money & hassels decommission the boat and make it road ready yourself... i use lots of old rags and duct tape, & zip ties to pad everything... also romove everything you can from the mast... i.e. spreaders, halyards, blocks and if the mast step is facing forward,(almost always) cover it so road stuff will not find its way inside... i usually haul out in the a.m. drop the mast and start making ready, this will take most of the day to do it correctly.... wish i could get up to maine to help out, i dig that kinda stuff.......
