"You're probably going to have to wait a few weeks for your boat to come through," my father told me. "They closed the pass today." This on top of a three day delay after my shipper got stuck north of the I-5 closures around LA. I knew that shipping a 29' sailboat was no easy task. I'd already had to change my lift due to dredging. The seller of my boat told me that the boat barely made it to the harbor but everything was safe and sound. MLR Transport picked up my boat on Monday and by Tuesday night the Siskiyou pass north of Medford had closed. When MLR reached the pass on Wednesday morning the pass had been cleared but the road was still rough shot. MLR safely transported my boat through the pass and had her in Portland Oregon that night. The shear distance between San Diego and Portland makes my head spin but my boat was here on schedule despite ranging storms up and down the entire west coast. I am living aboard my boat now, warm and dry, and MLR has my sincerest thanks.
