as stated it can cost this much to de-rig and set the rig and boat on the truck all packed for shipment with no owner help. this would include un wiring the mast, winterizing the boat for shipment and power washing the hull before loading. they wrap and pack everything on the boat for transport. would you do you it for $300 didn't think so
