Getting the mast
and boat together in one place is likely to be quite expensive. If you think that a motorboat trip up to Maine
would be fun, then take the boat up there and get it rigged. Shipping
the mast may be an option but it will depend on whether it is a single
section or whether it can be taken apart.
I highly doubt that meeting in the middle would be more cost effective. If you are shipping
the mast, then the incremental cost to get it all the way to you will likely be a lot less than the cost to get the boat to the midway point. Figuring out the cost of shipping the mast will be key to this.
