Recommendations for unstepping mast

I have an Island Packet 31 in Milwaukee that I need to prep for shipping to Pensacola. I'm looking for a reputable marina with lots of experience and crane to unstep mast and prep boat for shipping. Of course I will be on site for the process, but would like for all of it to go smoothly.

Anyone have recommendations as to who to use and who to stay away from?

Can't point you to what you want. But, if you have not yet lined up a shipper I recommend you use your favourite internet search engine to contact shipping companies. They frequently work cooperatively with marinas or boat yards likely to have the experience you're looking for.

Besides it's not always easy to locate a shipper available to fit your time line and do the job at a price you can accept.

I stayed there for almost a year and painted my boat while there. Mark and Mark will take good care of you.
