Question Mainship 390 Trawler Fly Bridge removal

Hello Boater friends.
I am in the process of buying a Mainship 390 and am looking for any documentation on removing the fly bridge for transport and specific height of boat.
Thank you very much if you have anything you can share
Charlie

IF you can find an ex Mainship dealership in your area and if they have someone who worked there during the time those boats were new, ,they would know the procedure. Most or all of those were shipped with the flybridge removed as far as I know. It was dealer assembly.

Where are you transporting from and to?

I have heard first hand from many that removing a fly bridge is an absolute last resort. Many boats will not be the same once a fly bridge is removed and re-attached. People say they chase leaks and gremlins.

Apparently my ST44 can be transported over land with just lowering the mast, and removing the windscreen. A few members here have done it with their boats loading at 15'9" which is fine to transport over land in most of the south and I think could get up to NJ.

I decided it just made sense to transport over water. Boats are meant to be floating on their bottoms not riding cross country on a trailer. The cost of transporting over land would've been more expensive. I also got a hell of a trip doing 3,000 miles by water.

I suggest contacting Rick Sweeten at Line Six Services...he specializes in transporting boats overland and may have already moved a MS trawler. Very honest and a good guy. (856) 466-5941

If you look at the "boats for sale" section, read the one about the 390 for sale by riverguy. He offers a manual that describes the procedure.

If there is any way at all to move her on her own bottom, it'll save you money and make a great trip; 1200sm for me.
