    Just a warning to others that might use Norris boat center and Mark Profit, owner and transport guy. "DON'T USE THEM!!!" There transport technicians are COMPLETE HACKS!! They transported my 36DB from Alabama to Florida, everything from windshield up has to be resealed!! Leaks everywhere!! Just a heads up to anyone looking for transport companies in that area.

    You had to take your flybridge off, no? Who put it back on?

    Ok. The only thing that made the trip on my dash was the helm. I remember GFC did remove the entire bridge and it made the trip separately.

    Sorry for the problems. I can say I had one wire plugged into the back of one of my 4-way gauges incorrectly and the gauges would not light up. Switched the one wire and that was my only issue attributed to taking the boat apart.

    Yeah, What sucks is Norris Boating center didn't remove old sealant, then gobbed new sealant on top of old, just a half assed job and what else sucked is Erwin Marine up in Alabama recommended this guy (Mark Profitt) who owns Norris Boating center and the transportation company that is part of Norris...… Only 9K for a half ass job, hell if the owner would split costs to put it back together right I'd be happy with that but the S.O.B. doesn't return my calls or texts...….Oh well....

    You should be able to get by with just removing the radar dome and antennas.

    Thanks Jim. Latest shipping estimate wants removal, I just emailed him that I will have no more than 13’ with radar and TV removed. (Keel to arch top)

    Still looking for transport!

    Just be care and prepared. My transport company agreed to just clearing the radar arch and removing the props, but on pace the truck showed up, the driver wanted to remove the arch. Supposedly he had the wrong truck/trailer. It was a lot of unnecessary last minute BS.

    When I had my 310DA transported years ago, the only items removed were what's on top of the arch. Arch remained on and zero issues.

    I’ve checked his rates a couple times. They were WAY over everyone else anyway.

    There is a boat hauler in the Gainesville Ga. area named Mark Stonkus He has a good reputation and seems to be a good guy. Good equipment. He quoted me a good price on a move from Guntersville to Dale Hollow but he wasn’t available when I needed it moved. The person who did move it I would not recommend.
