    Thanks all for the advice.

    The Yachyt I am going to drop the mast to help in the shipping, but not as worried about it, as i am about my tug.

    She is an old girl plus the sentimental value is high.

    Again thanks all, will be asking a few chippies in my area.

    BTW Heath:
    When my Graf Spee (1.5m) arrived from Graupner she was sitting strapped into a styrofoam cradle which was glued to the bottom of the box.
    All detachable parts, turrets, ship's boats etc, were packed in a separate box in a slot in the foam.
    Good luck,
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I kinda figured that you were the right guy for that question Peter ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰
    Hope your latest creations also arrive there still looking 'ship shape'!๐Ÿคž
    Happy river cruising,๐Ÿšค
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    @ Heath:
    I assume that you will unship the keel and mast of the yacht or it could get a bit tricky to pack ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Triangular box perhaps ๐Ÿ˜
    Have fun in the land of opportunity (to get shot at the Mall!? ๐Ÿค”) Hope not ๐Ÿคž

    I have shipped two boats to Hungary. I made boxes from 12mm plywood. I made six sides and screwed them together. I packed the boats in well with corrugated cardboard and bubble wrap. They both arrived in good condition, transported by UPS.
    Hope all goes well.
    Peter.

    Hello All

    Wondering if anyone can help me or point me in the right direction. I am moving across the pond to the states later this year and would like to take 2 of my boats with me, one is a Tug and the other a Yacht.

    Does anyone know of a place I can order a strong shipping crate for them, as they will be traveling with my container of items to the states and I don't want them damaged.

    Thanks in advance.
