Gazooks! The cost of keeping my 35' Bayliner on California's Lake Tahoe was running beaucoup bucks, and my thoughts wandered back to the budget cruising days I had known on the Chesapeake. When The State Park Police busted me for walking my dog on the beach one evening and ordered me, my dog, and my boat out of Emerald Bay immediately, I knew it was time for UShip! I had learned about UShip while thinking of shipping another boat some years back. So, from an internet cafe, UShip's website made it so easy to find a trucker for less than the cost of storing my boat for another winter with the pirates of Tahoe. The bids came within minutes, and I booked a winner, a real professional based sixty miles away. For me, a rookie, the UShip experience was safe, secure, and worth it. I recommend it highly. Now my boat is nestled on the green shores of St Marys River, Maryland, at a yachting center that welcomes sea dogs.
