Anyone out there tabernacle a Beneteau cruiser/racer? Also, anyone truck transport across the Panama Isthmus? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I found a post on Noonsite.com about truck transport. Boy, was I wrong about saving money. Seems like the alternative of truck transport across the Isthmus saves time but costs even more. Anyone else have some insight to this matter? This my second post, so I'll post the link in the third post....
