We went with U Ship. The winning bidder was Joule Yacht Transport. This was for a Tartan 37. The 37 only draws 4'2" so the top of the boat was lower than the top of the air dam on the truck.
In hindsight, I would go direct to these companies for larger boats. There are only so many of them that have the equipment
for this type of haul.
We were pretty pleased with the shipping
. For smaller boats - espescially those on a trailer, I have seen some friends have great results in shipping cheap
You can see in the picture that it is a "low boy" trailer which meant the keel
of the boat was not much more than a foot off the pavement. They were able to put the mast
on the trailer down low. This rig had an easy job on the 37'
