Hi Al, The yard that unloaded her was very professional and their equipment looked well taken cared for. I checked out the lifting straps and they looked good.
There are a lot of good brew pubs up here in the Portland area. Also a lot of coffee shops. I think our mild wet winters here breed them!
We bought the boat out of the mid west. There are not a lot of boats moving across country so it took forever to get a truck to move the boat. The trucking company we used did not damage the boat. But they really hammered us on the price. They gave us a price and then when the boat was loaded on the trailer came back and raised the price by 20%. No negotiation, he said it was for the oversize permits & construction detours. Bait & switch?
We are spending the weekend remounting the upper deck ladder & railings. Then need to clean her up, she is really dirty from the trip.
Mark, you win on the height! Not to mention hanging over steel containers instead of water. Looks like they had good rigging.
