Here are a few tips to prepare your boat for shipping:
1. Be sure to provide detailed information about your boat’s dimensions. Measure overall length, including bow pulpits, swim platforms, outboard motors and motor brackets. Height is measured from the bottom of the keel to the highest non-removable part of the vessel. Beam (or width) is calculated from the widest part of the boat.
2. Tie off all cables, disconnect batteries and stow all items topside. Also, secure the hatch and inspect deck for anything that could come loose during shipping.
3. Ensure trailers and cradles are bolted tight and fit the vessel. Also inspect for structural integrity, sturdiness and be sure the trailer is roadworthy.
