    Default Anyone looked into shipping home yet?

    My main issue with racing this year is time. I don't have the time to sail it home. Anyone coordinating for shipping deals yet this year? That's going to be the make or break for me.

    Check with Matson on their shipping schedule and rates for SHTP racers. Also, be aware the ship volume traveling to Hawaii has reduced due to the lower need for goods on the island. This could delay shipments in both directions.

    Others will need to chime in here but is the barge from Kauai going to be available with the crane? If so how much does the crane handle weight wise because a SF3200 weighs a lot more than an Olson 30.

    Also, lead is for keels, not umbrellas in your drinks !

    I see the SF3200 comes in at 7500 lbs base. Do you have a trailer? If the barge is an option if the crane is capable. If you have a cradle then you would need to sail it to Oahu to travel lift out. You'll also need to hire someone with a large enough truck to move it from the yard to Matson. My all up load (boat/trailer/gear) came in about 6500 lbs so I was able to just rent a pickup from Enterprise to move it.

    Yeah, she's heavy compared to all these little downwind boats... I don't have a trailer but the boat fits about right on a J/105 trailer so it isn't impossible to borrow or rent one. I was assuming I'd need to sail it to Honolulu but you guys are implying that if the crane can handle the load, I could barge it back from Kauai, eh?

    How else are us low-carb folks supposed to sweeten our drinks?

    For those of us who are looking to ship home via a delivery crew (unfortunately I don't have the time to sail back from Kauai, and I can't ship the boat back either because of her size), I need to get a surveyor to do an inspection in order to underwrite insurance coverage for the trip back for my delivery crew. I spoke with Larry tonight after the Zoom call. He is checking for surveyor for me. Larry is also asking to see if there is anyone else looking to hire a surveyor in Kauai. Please let me know. Thanks.

    Hi Will....wouldn't that be easier to get done in SFO.... or is that an insurance stipulation that it be done in Kauai?
