Need mast moved fron Conn.

i'M LOOKING FOR A RIGGER TO MOVE MY 62' MAST. COULD USE ANY RECOMDATIONS. oops caps locked.

The mast is in Noank Conn. would like someone from that area and going to New Hampshire. I've heard of special trailers that just move masts. Can be a one man operation I have lots of help on either end. I will take any numbers thanks to all that reply. renbluefish at aol dot com or post here:

you might want to try uship.com. i needed a much smaller mast (28')moved from TX to CO, advertised that I needed it done and got a 200 dollar bid door to door. It is viewed by haulers that are on there way back somewhere with an empty bed. It may not be of much help to you as your rig is a big son of a gun. good luck.

Most trucks will have issues with a mast that long. The maximum length on a single trailer is 53' in the USA... so moving a mast that is 62' LOA is a problem.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You will not find a rigger to move that mast, even with a cargo rig. You need a trucker and will probably pay dearly given its size..

How did the mast get separated from the boat?

Brownell moved the boat and couldn't move the mast with the boat. I think it had to do with permits and schedule that left the mast behind. I have heard of riggers that have a "special rig" that moves just mast alone by land.

Thanks QuickMick will give them a shout.

The mast is indoors so storage right now is not an issue, may have to knock on some doors to get someone to point me to "oh that guy he's down over by
and they used to and has one of those"

Otherwise, Brownell can move but needs an escort and clearance from # states

Be very careful about uShip (Dot) comm. BoatUS just had an article in its monthly news letter about that service. Evidently uShp is nothing but a broker and does not confirm the qualifications, licensing or insurance of any of the company's that pay for its referral services and there seems to have been quite a few problems.

As for the mast, many years ago I had to have a mast shipped from Sparcraft in the Seattle Area to the San Francisco Bay area. They couldn't seem to find anyone so I went up to Seattle myself, drove over to the local truck stop near SeaTac and started asking drivers if anyone going to the SF Bay area might have an interest in carrying a mast tied down on the top of their trailer. As I recall, it took about two hours to find someone to do so, for $200. Monday AM the fellow showed up at Sparcraft and they tied the mast down on his trailer and by Tuesday evening Richmond Boat Works was unloading the thing, none the worse for wear (or where), in Richmond Ca.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Good point. IIRC, that is what Sailchick reported as well. Not only are they only brokers, they add a fee on top of what dealing with the shipper direct would have cost as well. They do simplify finding a shipper, but without vetting them, they really aren't adding much in terms of value-added service IMHO.

I should mention that I didnt use the service, and was only speaking to the bid i received. the guy who bought the mast drove down from colorado with some contraption he built and we strapped it to his jeep!!! it was quite a sight. again, didnt want you to get the impression i dealt with them beyond receipt of price...
