How to ship a Spinnaker Pole

A guy wants to buy my 14' spinnaker pole. I am on the East Coast and he wants it in San Diego. How would you go about shipping it? And, what do you think the cost would be?

You should be able to simply tape the release lanyards and/or bridles so they don't catch on anything and put a label on it with the consignee's address. Nothing's going to happen to it unless someone drives over it with a forklift. (That did happen to a Hobie mast on it's way to Nairobi, once, but that was an accident.)

Whatever way you decide to ship it... ship it with insurance for buying a NEW ONE. That way, if it is damaged, destroyed or lost in shipping, you're covered.

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.
