It was a 28 foot Bayliner boat with 10 ft beam and 10,000 # GVWR. Going from Green Bay, WI to Tacoma near Seattle, WA. Shipper took 4.5 days to make the 2100 mile trip. Chris the person i dealt with to set up the shipment details was a great person to deal with. I am pleased overall . The driver had no experience towing a 10,000 # boat trailer. the driver and I were both lucky that that there were no incidents on the road. He had unhooked my safety chains holding boat to trailer and relied on tow strap. His stinger and tow ball were only rated for 5,000 #, so we were all really lucky.
