The legal height for transporting on U.S. highways is 13 feet, 6 inches. Many boats will have no trouble meeting this standard even on a trailer, but larger ones may need to be partially disassembled to pass under bridges and through tunnels. If you ship a boat with your own trailer, be sure the boat is held securely. If your boat is being shipped on an open trailer or truck, it might be a good idea to have it shrink-wrapped for protection against weather damage and road sediment. When shipping a dinghy with your larger boat, do not leave it on davits. Instead, protect it with padding to avoid damage to both vessels.
