Default 94 Blackfin Flybridge transport

My brother has a 94 Blackfin Flybridge that needs to be transported from New York to Florida. Is the boat too high to be trucked? Does the radar arch have to be removed? If so is removing the radar arch difficult (just unbolt). Any recommended transport companies? Thanks.

well start by sharing some details... what blackfin? how high would the boat be sitting on a trailer? where in NY? north of amboy nj, height restrictions become drastic compared to down south. most say removing a radar arch or fly bridge and reinstalling, the boat will never be the same. if too tall to trailer the whole way, most would get it to NJ and trailer from there. what research have you and your brother done so far? as far as transport companies, this gets asked all of the time. have you searched at all for recommendations? personally i use uship/truckaboat, do my due diligence on the hauler, check and validate all three types of insurance, read reviews, etc. it seems you are asking us to do most of the work for you...

Do yourself a favor and run it to a marina in NJ. Takes the Throgs/George Washington bridges out of play. saves a bunch of money and hassle...

With or without trailer? We can do either way. 13'4" is OK, still under legal limit. If you still need this done, give me a buzz. Thanks,
