OK...... go ahead....make all the jokes you want.

 But....

I need to transport a 2- from Northeastern's boathouse in Boston to trials in
Princeton, NJ for a customer who will pay a reasonable fee for this service.
Any WELL-KNOWN-TO-THE-ROWING-COMMUNITY takers?   IDEALLY, driver must be a
responsible Eagle Scout, member of the clergy, bonded and insured, willing to
undergo an FBI background check, agree to have a micro-chip implanted under
their skin for constant GPS tracking, wear an ID bracelet on their ankle,
furnish a credit report, resume, 5 letters of recommendation, ISO 9000
certified, CDL license,  (did I forget anything, r.s.r.?).   But if you don't
have any of these qualifications, a perfect stranger is fine, as usual.  :o)

For the sake of humor, r.s.r. readers may add to the list of qualifications
that I should require of any drivers.   Let the list begin.

But remember that I am genuinely serious about needing to move that 2- to/from
Princeton a.s.a.p.

Thanks,

Bill

I think the driver should be willing to take a time release
poison capsule that will instantly kill the driver if he doesn't
take the antidote by a certain time/date.   This, of course, will
be awaiting him at his destination.

Also, he should sign a no-fun disclaimer.  It annoys the heck out of
boat buyers that the deliverer stopped somewhere along the way to have
a good time - EVEN if the boat's on time.  

'YOU STOPPED AND TOURED GETTYSBURG????"   with MY BOAT ON TOP????

'WHADDAYA MEAN the waves were great at Myrtle Beach????  You
stopped to SURF?????'

Bill:  

My great granddad told me of an alternate way of shipping
shells.  It seems that way back when they would transport
the shells in rail boxcars.  The boat was on slings and
hung from the top of the rail car.  They used various
ropes and counterweights to keep it stable during the
transport.  He said it worked pretty well, but it was
important to keep in touch with the freight master at
the destination so that the railroad workers did not
try to unload it themselves.

Maybe Bill you should look into this as an alternate
means of shell movement.  Pack 'em in boxcars and
let the railroad do the rest !  They are insured, bonded,
etc.  Perhaps you can even acquire your own empacher boxcar
and give out railroader hats with the logo on it !

An alternate idea is to have your own ISO standard container
to place it on a flat car.  

Both ideas should work.   Hope this helps out.
