    Try signing up on UShip.com.... It's just like eBay, except all the shipping companys bid on shipping your item. You can decline bids if they are too high, and you can ask as many questions as you want. I ship Yamaha Rhinos and cars on UShip.com all the time.

    If you can't get good quotes there, let me know, and i'll get you some of my more personal shipping numbers. What I mean by that is, these are the more mom and pop shipping companys that I sometimes use if I need something shipped really fast. They usually only take like 1 or 2 items at a time, and since they aren't big companys, they can go out and get the item that day. They also have really reasonable shipping costs.

    idohcvtecexi is right U-ship is great if you can wait for the right guy to come along that will take your hull. Also the "friend" that is going that way can throw it in the back of his truck. If you can put it in a crate or enclose it in a box ( so the $8 an hour guy running the forklift doen't put the fork through it ) you could send it with a good truck line like estes, ups friegh, fedex freight, ACT and the like. If that appeals to you I can pretyy much guarentee that I can beat anything you can get with a major truck line.
    Ive got lots of users on here for references if you want PM me.
    Good luck
    John
