I found a great deal on Ebay on a small dinghy or tender. The problem was, it was in Portland, Or, and I live in Southern Illinois. The manufacturer suggested using uship. An overall great thing. The shipper got the boat early so he arrived here ahead of schedule. He kept me informed of the progress and got here when he said he would. The boat is in great shape.. and was on his trailor! Not having to buy a boat trailor on the West Coast, or having to go fetch it home made the deal VERY GOOD. The cost was less than I would have spent in gas. I will use this again, and hopefully even the same shipper. Use uShip again, Ubet! Glenn
