Boat Prep for Over-the-Road Transport
Moving Boats Since 1920
Associated Boat Transport
It is important to understand that once loaded on the truck the boat will be moving at highway speeds of 55 mph or more, and that the truck may well encounter head or cross winds in excess of 50 mph. Resulting winds over the deck can exceed 100 mph. Rain, snow, and hail are common occurrences. The boat itself is designed to withstand these conditions but accessories, including canvas, rigging, flying-bridge windshields, electronics and more, are not able to stand up to the impacts of these elements. With this in mind, we recommend the following steps be taken when prepping the boat.
