Yeh...that sounds better.
I can see the attraction to sailing your own boat in these far away places.
I've never been a fan of bare boat charter, I need to know my boats systems, capabilities, characteristics before I put my family on board and set out to sea.
Could just be that I'm a slow learner!

|camaraderie||kaluvic...you are correct...the $7.5k includes the boatyard work to haul the boat, remove the mast and keel and load into the container at both ends of the trip.|

I think it’s a clever idea and would be a fun design project.
Its not for me...I like more traditional proportions, but I think there is definitely a market for it.
I think the estimation of $7,500 to ship a 40ft container is way over the top.
4 months ago I shipped a 40ft HIGH CUBE container from Fl. to Yemen for less than $5,500.
Shipping these days is way down compared to then.

However, it would not surprise me if at some point the Dana gets reunited with the rest of Pacific SeaCraft in North Carolina.

|baboon||I think this might be a good boat for a retired couple who could spend a month or 3 at locations all over the world. The shipping costs start to factor out ok the longer you spend in one location, especially compared to chartering. You end up with a well made craft with no learning curve and the equipment you want ready to go. My biggest concerne would be damage. Sliding that hull in and out of unforgiving metal containers on inflatable rollers seems iffy. One slip, one time, and suddenly your expensive new boat needs a month in some foreign yard for repairs. Most workers doing this have probably never done it before as it is a pretty rare bird. Shippers are also notoriously carless with our stuff, with damaged goods being very common overall.|

|CharlieCobra||I yakked with Bob over a beer about this boat, interesting concept but not my cuppa tea. The CA 36 that was designed over on SA is more my speed, that or the 46 we're currently bandying about.|
