Somewhere to deliver a spinnaker pole to in Croatia

Hi All,

I'll be sailing the Croatian coast this summer and am at the same time having a spinnaker pole made by Pauger Carbon in Budapest, Hungary. Consequently I have to figure out the best way to have it delivered from the factory to the boat - seems like my options are:
  1. Hire a minivan when I get to Croatia, drive to Budapest and just pick it up myself (bearing in mind it's 7m long...)
  2. Pay to have it freighted to me at predetermined port when I'm there waiting for it. Likely means my item is the only thing on the truck so expensive.
  3. Have it freighted in advance and stored somewhere until I arrive meaning it can go with other items and share delivery cost
Number 3 would no doubt be the cheapest if I can find somewhere to have it delivered to prior to my arrival so the freight company can just bundle it with other goods sometime in May/June/July.

So, does anyone live, or know someone who lives along the Croatian coast that wouldn't mind a 7m long spinnaker pole sitting in their garage (or even outside) for several weeks? More than happy to offer a days sailing in return as thanks!
