So my roommates and I decided to move from Oregon to Chicago. Problem was that we all have our toys and can't bare the thought of any dents, dings or scratches on any of them. So we got a 26' moving truck and devised a never-before-done method of putting a Porsche and Hobie 16 (with mast) in while leaving a little bit of room for some furniture and clothes.
Problem was that the 26' truck turned out to be more like 24' which meant that the mast had to go diagnolly across the inside and barely fit with inches to spare.
We bubble-wrapped the entire boat and secured it and then set the tramp on the mast over the car.
Pretty cool. Everything made it in 1 peice - the boat trailer was dissasembled and fit underneath the car just barely. That car rides pretty low and only cleared the trailer frame by about 1/2".
Unfortunately both the Porsche and the Hobie got a couple dings here and there. Pretty much anywhere the Hobie touched anything it marked.
Oh well - as long as it still outruns power boats I 'spose that's ok!
I won't tell you which moving truck company we rented from but I will say that we broke pretty much every rule in the rental agreement.
Anybody else have a cool moving story?
