I had my Grady White 232 shipped from Virginia to Seattle, Washington. I was not there when the boat was loaded but the seller and marina representatives where the boat was kept were there for the load. While all canvas and cushions were properly put in the cabin and locked, the hatches were not taped down. While this might not be necessary it was in this case. There are 2 hatch covers in the stern of the boat that both blew off somewhere along the way. They did not leave any damage to the boat but did leave a project for me to do now that I have the boat. And matching 10 year old hatch covers will not be perfect.
