Why didn't I think of shipping with Greyhound years ago? Folks on the west coast will be happy to know I can ship a 16 ft set of hulls to California for $125.00 if you pick them up from your local bus station. That's a good deal over standard shipping rates. One drawback is they won't ship the 8 foot deck planks but if you're handy with some basic tools you can make a deck to fit your needs. So, just a heads up for all you who got a more expensive shipping quote in the past. This was one of those things I never considered but glad I finally discovered. Go Greyhound!
