How to Prepare a Boat for Transport
Before your boat is ready for transport, there are a few simple steps that need to be taken. First, take pictures of your boat to illustrate its condition and how to reassemble it. Secondly, secure any loose items and remove any personal items from the boat. Finally, make sure you clean the boat’s exterior and inspect for any damage. We recommend having it inspected by a licensed marine surveyor if possible.
