I am shipping it up to NY And will need to remove the arch. I appreciate any information you may have.
Hey Blazer. So funny, I had to re read my original post to remember what I said. So much has changed in a year! So we bought this boat with intentions to see how we like doing the whole coast thing then ship it back to the lake once we were sick of commuting to the boat. Well, we had no idea weíd love boating on the coast as much as we do. We are actually selling the Mainship and buying an older trawler in the Keys. The Mainship would be a Great Lake boat, but we arenít ready to give up the coast.

So to answer your question, we never shipped the boat. I think ours would have been simple though. The radar arch is metal, it unbolts. Looks like some sealant, like silicon was used, so that would need to be addressed. The cables will pull right out. For our boat, that should be it. We bought this boat specifically to be able to ship easily, others Iíve read are a bitch.

So sorry I canít help with shipping! But if you need advice with driving 4 hrs to
Your boat, let me know!
