swing keel

Swig keel should help. Also with a special cradle boat could could sit at 45 degrees (hypotenuse is longer on right triangle), that way there is more room for beam. You best remember to take mast legnth into consideration as 40 feet maybe too short for many boats.

Hello;

Wouldn't it be easier to fly to the US or Canada or wherever to get a boat and sail it from there? Maybe take a leave from work or something? Just a thought.

Buy any boat you want.
They have a special ship that they sink.
Float your boat over it.
Underwater weld jackstands to the deck of the transport ship
Refloat the ship.
I'm guessing about 20,000
They are professionals that do this all the time.
You get any boat you want.

Hi all,

My search has resulted in the following:

Trident 24
Hurley 20
Hurley 22
Vivacity 20
Elizabethan 23

All are older, well-built British boats. All have crossed the Atlantic. All will fit in a standard 40' container.

David

You may have looked into this, but what about locally produced boats? I don't know the state of the industry there, but weren't there many shipyards in Asia producing sailboats? Did they ship them all overseas?

Cheoy Lee, Ta Shing? I think I remember reading that O'Days are still produced in Japan.
