I needed to move a 14’ carbon fiber racing sailboat from Minneapolis to Long Island. The Uship ad generated a number of responses that fit my requirements. In the end I chose the one I thought was most experienced in shipping sailboats. I chose Nauti Buoy Marine from Port Clinton, Ohio. They delivered the boat on time in spite of the seller not having registration for the trailer or it having working lights. this we didn't know until pick up. (BTY, in MN registration & lights are not required for trailers under I think 4ooolbs) Further, they were in contact either by e-mail or cell phone during the entire trip. They were very easy to deal with and the price was right.
