I found a this fixer upper unexpectedly while in FL on business. Since it was a low cost (and a bucket list) item I'd have extra for shipping and repairs. I stumbled through the first listing with inadequate info from the seller, but the questions directed by the potential shippers focused in on what to look out for. Fortunately, uShip found a great shipper nearby, Troy at Blue Water Marine with many years of experience in Bayliner boats. His knowledge was impressive and he offered to locate any needed parts for me as the restoration progresses. Tropical Storm Ida and the Sunday wide-load restrictions didn't help any, but Troy is not a quitter and went well above and beyond what I expected and managed to get this VERY HEAVY boat to its final location. Excellent service after the sale so to speak is very much appreciated and the bonus of being able to source parts for this restoration was an unexpected but very pleasant surprise! If only everyone was as diligent as Troy,,, it was like a trip back in time when a man's word was his bond! He and everyone else involved in this move are invited to it's maiden voyage when the day comes. uShip not only helped get my toy moved, but introduced me to a good friend! Many thanks, Randy
