Initially we loaded her bow forward but the weight distribution didn't suit the trucker so we reloaded her stern forward.
I had prepped the boat not knowing how she would be loaded but having seen it done both ways. Everything was off the deck, all hatches were fully secured and all vents were sealed. The only change I had to make was to remove the bow pulpit as a precaution as it was at 13' and the limit was 13' 6'. We felt that was too close for comfort. It took another 30 minutes to remove and stow the pulpit.
She came across the country from La Conner WA to Oriental NC in 6 days and without a mark or opened seam.
