Isn't that a killer about derigging and marina services costing as much as the shipping? Ours did, too (Annapolis, MD to Ithaca, NY). Had I but known I'd have waited 'til summer and sailed her up the Intercoastal & canal systems.
But then, the deal might not have waited or the marina storage would have added up . . . Life is just full of compromises.
I'll give credit to the transport service we used. On time at both ends and the bill was exactly as quoted. The yard we pulled and packed up at, however, charged us for everything except the local air trapped in the cabin. Sheesh.
Hope you enjoy the boat!
