    RE: Robbe Scandia

    Bruce,
    I'm looking forward to someone with an answer to shipping. I've been making and selling a few boats. My BIGGEST problem is finding a cheap way to transport them. I've quoted people more than the boat value to arrange packaging and courier charges. Couriers are guaranteed to smash anything fragile as is our postal service. I'm in Australia. Courier cost of $140 to $200 is normal. This doesn't include me trying to package.

    In some cultures my behaviour would be considered normal............

    RE: Robbe Scandia

    Thje best I've seen was done for a friends boat that travelled the length of NZ.Invercargill to Taupo.
    The sender had wrapped the boat,keel.rudder,in plastic cling film.Rudder and keel seperate from the hull,but in the same box.
    These parts were put in a cardboard box which was then half filled with expanding foam,the kind that plumbers use to fill gaps around pipes.
    Then a layer of film was laid over this and the box filled the rest of the way.Once the foam had set the box was taped shut addressed and sent.
    Arrived safe and sound on courier 2 days later.Cost was $50 from memory.
    Mast and sails came in a cardboard tube taped to the box.
    Unpacking was as easy as pulling the two halfs of foam away from boat etc and taking off the cling wrap.
