I was shipping a 23' boat from Lake Charles, LA to Waukegan Yacht Club on beautiful Lake Michigan. A deal was made with Dave King of King Transport from Georgia for a reasonable price and he handled everything perfectly. There was some difficulty picking up, but Dave persevered and got on the road just fine. At the harbor we had to wait for the crane operator, which Dave was OK with. The extraordinary part of this story is nothing! There were no hurricanes, or flat tires, or any delays. The plan went perfectly smooth. These days we seem to be dealing with a lot of incompetence, excuses, or highway robbery. There was none of that, only professionalism and great attitude, which is truly refreshing! This was truly an enjoyable experience.
