Yes, put any hard items cushioned inside on the floor or maybe V berth etc. Rigging
fittings etc will wear a bad hole in anything they contact, like floors and cabinets etc. unless they have thick secured padding.
-pay particular attention to the mast; how it's held alongside the hull
. How it is cushioned.
-Have arrangements to avoid too much vibration and rubbing of the mast.
-Have arrangements to avoid spreaders or the mast rubbing the hull.
I have shipped a boat 1200 miles twice. Damage occurred both times. This was a boat trucking company, not your average trucking company.
-One time there was a hole rubbed in the hull sides from a vertical member
on the trailer
-One time there was a hole rubbed in the aluminum
mast. There were carpet remnants secured around the mast. It rubbed through.
-DO NOT close cockpit
-Vinyl wrap is good, otherwise the front surfaces of the boat, including cabin
trunk will have a multitude of bugs, diesel
and possibly chips in them.
