Shipping B&R rig

We are looking at a 43' aluminum schooner. Kind of an unusual rig, both masts are B&R type, no backstays. It also has two Hoyt jib booms.

So the boat is in Florida and, if we buy it, we will ship it to Philadelphia area.

Looking at that mast I'm not anxious to unstep it, and much less to let go all that standing rigging. So I'm thinking we unstep the masts and ship them with tension on.

Now there are a zillion Hunters out there with these masts no to mention all the cats. Surely someone has done this?

Any suggestions, comments, condolences?

Is this feasible? Desirable? Are there any Hunter sites that talk about this kind of thing?

Many thanks,
