I found the sailboat that I wanted halfway across the United States and the UShip icon on the Boat US classified website was the only source and first source i saw to explore delivery. I had lots of qualified bids, but as I worked more with the boats home marina and my own marina, it became apparent that i needed to modify my shipment requirements. Uship gave me that option in realtime online mode. I was able to notify the shippers and request the wet launch boat launch I needed; I received the bid and launch capability i requested. My experience with EMI Transport was top notch. They've set the bar high for shipping in my book. I'll contact them again for any future boat transport projects and so will the members at Lake Palestine Yacht Club that helped with the stepping of the mast and relaunch of our new Hunter 310.
