Kayaking Shipping

Hello, I am trying to ship my playboat from Virginia to Alaska. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on the best way of going about doing so? Thanks for the advice.

I just got my boat shipped from Virginia to Colorado, went on Greyhound. Got there maybe 2 days more than expected but didn't take but 5 days maybe? I can't remember exactly.. it felt like eternity waiting for it to get here but it really didn't take long. I'm actually looking into shipping my boat to Alaska as well for the summer but to the Anchorage area. But I'd go greyhound. No problems there, and cheap.

Kayaking when its flowing... skiing when it's snowing

Thanks, I think I will have to fly it, no greyhound in Fairbanks.
