Growing up, my father and I enjoyed boating tremendously, and it was a big part of his and our lives in upstate NY. I since moved from NY to New Orleans. Sadly, my father passed away in October, and rather than selling his Sea Ray, I decided to keep it to see how I liked it. The problem was how to get it from NY to New Orleans? I had never shipped anything like this before, and when I checked with the shipper recommended by the marina where my father stored his boat, the shipping kindly told me about uShip, as his rate was so expensive. I put in a description, and within MINUTES had multiple offers that were less than half the price of the marina shipper. With all the feedback information provided by uShip, I made my choice. I'm very happy to say, the boat arrived yesterday. It made me so very happy to have my dad's beloved boat.
