I am new to sailing and to uShip. I bought a used Catalina 22 on EBay. The boat was located at a marina on Long Island. Inasmuch as it was on a trailer, I thought about hauling it myself to the local marina her in the Washington, D.C. area. After meeting with the owner to complete the transaction, I decided I just wasn't experienced enought to tow the boat out of the NYC area. I googled boat shipping and found the uShip cite. It was very simple to list the job and the bids ranged from $400 to $900. I know a saved a bundle and could not have been happier with the service I received from the winning bidder.
